PgUS has taken the position that it is up to the PUG to determine if
they would like Financial support and what for. We just set a budget.
Obviously if demand increases we will put some constraints in so that we
can spread the wealth across all who needs it but beyond that, the only
rules that are currently laid out are here:

So if SFPUG has something they want or need, just follow the rules
above. If not, shrug :D it is there should you want it.
