That, do any fee-efficient money transfers that may be possible and
reporting funds held in Brazil in SPI's annual reports, I think.

I refer to the money named in the above-linked report:

The amount named as "Credit" on the table in the previous section is
invested by ASL (so it may have grown as for today), on Debian's
behalf, in Brazil. A 10% administration fee is charged and it can be
withdrawn after a 30-day notice (that is common practice in these
cases) either in credit of SPI (by means of an international
agreement) or to be used in Brazil as explained before.

Hope that explains,
