Subject Making donations to the project
Date Wed, 19 Oct 2011 08:20:34 GMT
This is a transfer of a discussion that started on the private list. It
started by considering the situation of TeamOO in relation to the ASF. Many
people over time have made small donations to TeamOO - some probably that
are philosophically opposed to the Apache license and are committed to LibO
or even something different. This leaves TeamOO in a difficult position in
terms of administering the funds they have. ASF policy is that money donated
simply goes to the ASF not to specific projects. Some would consider that
the ASF donations system is not very accessible to individuals wanting to
donate small amounts of money. This discussion is to explore ways of working
that fit ASF's charitable status and donations policy while enabling those
that want to make monetary contributions to OpenOffice.org to be able to do
so.

That is an attempt to summarise the discussion. If I got anything important
wrong or left anything out please comment accordingly.
