The English I learned doesn’t make an announcement of the form “here are people offering money so you can continue your IETF work” an "Announcement of conferences, events, or activities”.  Maybe me announcing that I wrote another version of some piece of software that implements IETF protocols and plan to continue doing that, does, much more so, but nobody would complain about that.

“Considerable latitude”, as Amelia said…

(And, as usual, the detection of this as a charter violation created an order of magnitude more noise than the pointer itself.)

Thanks, Jay, for the pointer.
(They didn’t work for me in a previous incarnation.
Probably EU reviewer syndrome — because everybody who knows something about a subject also has a conflict of interest in that space, the reviews aren’t always optimal in quality.)
