[OpenID board] Budget for review?

Thanks! A few budget questions.

 1) How does the legal and tax budget compare to spending in FY09? I
assume that tax is the minority of the budget?

 2) I see that the Adoption Committee has $40,000 budgeted split
between market research, case studies/tutorials, and library updates.
There appears to be another $55,000 written into the budget for
branding/design/writing, web marketing, public relations, and IIW
sponsorships. Which Committee is managing this additional $55,000

3) While we've seen growth in the number of Sustaining Members, should
we be taking a more conservative approach to budgeting rather than
spending all but $600 this year? Trying to increase our bank balance
would be prudent given that the future is always unpredictable when it
comes to membership (currently our only revenue).

4) I believe that the Technology Committee had asked for a modest
budget for hosting events like this upcoming technology summit. Given
that we're already doing this, why was that request denied (or is it
the membership meetings & support budget)?
