It was a long day, as you can tell by how long the meeting lasted. I'm not going to publish the detailed list of our decisions yet, because I've been asked to wait until we have a formal announcement written, which may take a few days. Note, however, that (a) we ended up having not quite as much surplus to spend as the early estimates showed, and (b) the requests we had would have spent that surplus at least twice over and probably more. Nobody will get a giant windfall, in my opinion. Many groups will get a nice donation that they can do some good things with, but no super-sized donations. I'll talk more about it in a few days once we're ready to make a formal announcement.
I am very tired. This kind of meeting is a lot of work. Running a significant surplus is the second-worst thing that can happen to a convention of this sort. I'm only glad that the very worst thing didn't happen.
