This was agreed among those involved by unanimous consent on 20090927, but circumstances following the agreement have made it obsolete. A brief notice regarding the nature of the obsolescence must be entered.
Since it has been agreed, the page is locked.
Contact WikiSysop to make small corrections (spelling, grammar, etc.) or add an agenda item to re-visit this agreement at an appropriate meeting.

This agreement is obsolete. The person who crafted this agreement has left the co-op, and the addition of a new investor changed the nature of fundraising.
