Indeed; I've been uncomfortable with Michael defending a situation
where there is a lack of data.[1]  Michael has done excellent work in
preparing statements for the 'item_7' slider splits begining 5 April
2013[2]---after Jono left,[3] the community team took over collective
responsibility[4].  The recurring discussion has been regarding
donations in the previous finanical year:

  9 October 2012[5]--4 April 2013[2].

The Paypal setup supplies an itemised order based on the sliders
(including zero sliders) to the 'donations at' account.[6]

couple of people, so hopefully the relevant breakdowns of the income
can be retrieved and made available shortly to give some better idea
of scale.  Following that, I hope that the presentation of (some) hard
data can focus any discussion to a constructive finality.
