Expenses paid by donated BTC¶
docs/donations.rst describes the “Transparent Accounting” that we use for BTC that has been donated to the Tahoe project. That document lists the budget items for which we intend to spend these funds, and a Bitcoin public key for each one. It is signed by the Tahoe-LAFS Release Signing Key, and gets re-signed each time a new budget item is added.
For every expense that get paid, the BTC will first be moved from the primary donation key into the budget-item -specific subkey, then moved from that subkey to whatever vendor or individual is being paid.
This document tracks the actual payments made to each vendor. This file changes more frequently than donations.rst, hence it is not signed. However this file should never reference a budget item or public key which is not present in donations.rst. And every payment in this file should correspond to a transaction visible on the Bitcoin block chain explorer:
This was a small transfer to obtain proof-of-spendability for the new wallet.
