I do not know more about this than anyone else does. It's all in this 
mailing list archives. For example see here:
(June 2012)
We were able to initiate transfer of SPI funds formerly earmarked for to the ASF. However, due to changes in the ASF Fundraising
chair, this transfer has been postponed. Followup with ASF Fundraising is
needed to complete this transaction. These funds, as previously discussed,
will primarily be used for developer travel when needed.

(Note: I'm sure that the transfer was later done successfully and that 
the ASF Treasurer now manages these funds under a separate chapter)

and collateral materials?

They were collected for a range of possible targets, but the only one 
feasible at Apache was events. Again, the discussion happened before 
mid-2012, I wasn't Chair and I didn't have any role in the discussion or 
in the project at the time.

I don't remember if this was one of the possible uses, but again I 
didn't have a major role in the discussion about this in 2012.
