well this is at least a link to the general donation page of Apache.

I think more about 1-click paypal button or combined with a pre-filled
(eg. 10$) donation text field and a page with some more project specific
background information why a donation is useful and make sense.

I think there exists several ways to make a PayPal donation quite easy.
And easy is of course important here, people don't want to read a dull
page to find the necessary information.

We should ask for a donation or at least point to the donation option
when people download it but should in general point on every website
people to the donation option.

>7million downloads should trigger some donations to Apache. The project
is huge, successful and we cause some costs as well. I think we should
leverage the brand to collect more donations...
