That's also more or less what currently the Core Team gets support from
the T3A. There is almost none "coding related" budget, most of it is
used in the travels, organisation, infrastructural work (git), meetings,
release work, etc.

All bugfixes, enhancements, new features, API work, etc, is still mostly
done for free and on a voluntary basis, except for projects which get
external sponsoring.

I can imagine that it is difficult to get external sponsoring for
"security fixes", especially because people won't know what to sponsor
exactly. Therefore I can also imagine that more budget could be granted
to your team in 2013, if this is well explained in the proposal which
will be also judged by the Community.
