Show us the $$$....!

I've been looking thru. the forums but don't see any report on Xoops's Financial Status; If it announced some where please let me know.

This is an open source community project, thing like $$$ should be transparent, Financial report quarterly or yearly is a MUST.

I understand (vaguely) that $$$ have been put towards the purchasing of hardware, but there is none put aside for hosting conferences, get together, coffee, dinners etc for core & module dev. I am sure there are others thing as well, please put your suggestion here.

I am sure others members would like to know about the financial status of XOOPS and they would want they $$$ to go back into Xoops. Please voice your opinions here.

yep, seconded too, as asked in other threads. Transparency would help a lot.

Has this ever been published in the past by the way?

Or do you want some money for a new mp3-player?

For some info see this thread in the dutch forum.

At the end of this month everything regarding the Foundation will be published online, and from then on, with regular updates. This is a solid promise.

We'll also need yearly audits with some official statement from a local certified accounting company.

Did we have already any audits in place? If yes, could you include them as well? If not, when could we expect a first audit?

Why?

Xoops is a foundation and for this it probably doesn't need to be checked by an accounting company. This might depend on the national laws of the country where it's registrated.
