The Co-op Cloud Federation has a common fund which can be used by federation members by proposing budgets.

With Resolution 009, we want to introduce the idea of a common fund buffer.

This buffer is proposed to be set at 1,500 EUR. When the buffer is reached, no more budgets can be proposed. When the fund increases once more, budgets can resume.

The buffer is in place to reserve funds for critical collective spending when we have limited income.


1,500 EUR is fairly arbitrarily chosen but seems to be a reasonable amount of money to cover situations where, e.g. we need to pay for servers, domains, mail accounts or other common critical infrastructure.
