I have already answered to that. All money in the project budget come from
Google Summer of Code and have been spent to get students and contributors
to AppSec conferences and project summits. The $4500 of the code sprint
have not been allocated to Hackdemic; they have been allocated directly to
the students.

Well obviously not. This looks more like a discussion around code sprint
and money spending and btw burying a rather successful project to justify
the means.

Thank you for expressing your *personal* opinion on our project Timo. I
respect it but would have appreciated it if it was more to the point and
targeted to the right people, rather than the board list.
Unfortunately, the way you and especially Johanna are handling this is
offensive and libelous. Very much different than constructive criticism.
