April 2017 financial reports

Many thanks to all donors and patrons who generously invested in GhostBSD this last April. Like always you ensured that we could meet all the costs associated with running our web server and packages builder server for GhostBSD. Donation from our community and sponsors starts to be more consistent, and this is tremendously helping the project to go forward.
