[FAmSCo] almost done with current year's budget

I updated a ton of stuff today, after being so embarassed that the 
slides at FUDCon didn't have accurate data.

FOSDEM expenses and reimbursements made at FUDCon still aren't in here, 
since I haven't filed those expense reports yet, but I think it's safe 
to say that we'll get close to $80k in total regional spending by the 
time it's all done.




As a point of comparison:

Last year:
FY10 regional budget -- $104k
FY10 final spending -- $74k

This year:
FY11 regional budget -- $100k
FY11 final spending (estimated) -- $80k

Next year:
FY12 regional budget (projected) -- $85k

That budget number drops a little bit, but what this email doesn't show 
is that it also allow us to increase the Premier Fedora Events Budget in 
anticipation of an India/APAC FUDCon being added to the rotation.

FAMSCO's challenge is to figure out the best way to spend about $20k USD 
per quarter worldwide.  It doesn't only have to be on events, 
sponsorships, and swag.  Let's think outside the box on ways we can 
spend money that will encourage contribution across Fedora.

I want FAMSCO to start to think of itself as Fedora's regional 
leadership teams, and not only for Ambassadors.  Ambassadors as 
catalysts for contributors everywhere is a better ways of saying it!
