One thing that you probably want to fix: I found the amount of formatting
variation to make how much each person gets quite confusing, I'd suggest
changing it to something like this made up example, where it's totally
obvious who gets what and what fraction they have:

* https://bugs.libre-soc.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12345 Example Task Name
    * Total: 200 EUR
    * lkcl: 100 EUR -- 1/2 of total
    * programmerjake: 25 EUR -- 1/8 of total
    * mnolan: 75 EUR -- 3/8 of total

* https://bugs.libre-soc.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54321 Other Example Task Name
    * Total: 200 EUR
    * lkcl: 200 EUR -- all of total

I might add a .md parser to the financial tracking script to check
consistency with bugzilla.

Also, we could add fields to bugzilla to track who gets paid what from each
bug, avoiding the need to parse free-form english. If we did that, we could
auto-update the .md files for each person, where we instead send an email
to the mailing list if updating failed because we couldn't parse it, or we
weren't 100% sure the update would be correct.
