warchest for funding open source development
What if we all regularly put 5 or 10K every year into a shared pot for funding development for things like moodle, drupal, wordpress, or other open-source applications?
Fister, what if you could SAVE money in the long run via this model? Really!
Sounds good, but I don't have any money. Really.
Interesting idea. We do this now in a way by contributing staff time or by supporting PLOS. To whom would the money go--is there an organization that could accept and disburse it? If there isn't one, what kind would be needed? NITLE?
