Thanks a lot! I think technically we have to vote when we change our
bylaws, so I was a bit hesitant, but then we can have a simple vote
at our General Assembly.

Good point; we already ask people if they are okay with their name
appearing on public communication, so we could use this information.
Probably we also should have a website, or at least a subpage on the Guix

Difficult to estimate. It mainly consists in polling the SAC on questions,
such as "do we continue to pay for a domain?" or "do we reimburse X for
stickers?" and this kind of thing. And as Treasury, update the accounting
file and make wire transfers for the actual reimbursement; and deal with the
FSF since we advance some money for hosting that will then be reimbursed by
our funds held at the FSF. It is not that much work, but always a little
amount of stress since I am always a bit afraid that the real situation does
not correspond to my files :-)  But so far it has always ended up being

For the first point, I think it is not necessary to state how a GA is
