Hi all,

I did get a response after all. Thanks go to our treasurer, Daniel
Pitti, who is working above, but apparently not beyond, the call of duty
this Thanksgiving week.

This agrees with my recollection. The expectation, moreover, was that we
should be able to reallocate--i.e. allocate back--the unspent portion
for the personography work after the books are balanced.

So provided the books do balance, I believe we will be able to get board
approval to supply the money. I would also second the suggestion made by
Lou (I think it was) that we consider inviting a representative of the
Ontology SIG. They were in a very working-group-like frame of mind and
are eager to see some real progress in this area.
