Here’s that weekly monthly update on the payments and income for WordPress community events that we now post monthly. (You’d be amazed at how much more efficient it is to do this report on a monthly basis.) This report might get more elaborate as we get the time to build more tools around financial reporting (currently it’s quite, very, extremely manual), so if there’s a level of detail we’re not providing that you’d like to see, please mention it in the comments!
