Hi, Paul!

Thank you for your comment on our financials! Considering the time I
spend compiling the numbers, I'm really happy somebody outside the
financial team actually looks at them, besides the tax office. ;-)

In most years, the by far largest share of the item "paid services" is
participation fees for the Free Software Legal and Licensing Workshop

The extraordinary high numbers in 2017 and 2018 result from significant
money we received for the REUSE project (https://reuse.software/),
specifically from Siemens.

Other income included in this item is speaker fees FSFE receives for
talks held by staff or volunteers, and remuneration for consulting done
by FSFE.

For the curious, and for the sake of completeness: the numbers given are
excluding VAT.

I hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to ask further questions!
