Thanks Jason,

I've had a first attempt at adding a payment handling extension to the specs
at http://trac.proams.org/index.fcgi/wiki/lugInABox - not my best work, they
are not terribly atomic (for example, I raise the possibility of a Secretary
role as well as the Administrator). Hope they make sense - if not, let me
know and I will expand on them, and of course everyone should feel free to
add/change/comment things. I've based it on the needs of a couple of
information architecture-related bodies that I am involved in, but hopefully
the requirements are generic enough that it should apply itself to any group

One thing I didn't add, and I just thought of - an extension to the
extension for handling conference fees would be a good thing (and beefing up
the meeting management spec to include agenda management for a multi-day
event might be useful too). A BarCamp event template might be a good place
to start (no money, but members having to specify attendance at the
event/dinner and optionally provide t-shirt size). Happy to add this if you
think it would be useful.

Personally I think it is OK for the spec to be bigger than Ben Hur - so long
as the next step would be to prioritise and throw things into separate
phases - but I don't want to take over the process here because I can write
requirements and other docco till the cows come home but it probably won't
be me doing the coding :)

Best regards, Andrew
