Subject Re: MSDN Subscription for Apache Committers
Date Wed, 29 Mar 2017 20:05:00 GMT
Hi Luciano, *

Can we really expect that? I don't think. The subscription we get costs a  
load of money per year for normal people out there. We have to be lucky  
for such an offer. I think, Microsoft don't like to support a inactive  
committer, who save a load of money and work anymore for the ASF. So I  
understand, that they only give the subscribtion for a year. So I think we  
should be thankful for this.

I was also profiting two years from the MSDN Subscription, even the main  
work was for Apache OpenOffice!

Also MS is one of the longest standing Platium sponsor from the ASF (or  
the longest)

Regards, Raphael
