We do not recommend that you setup new ChiliProject instances and we urge all existing users to migrate their data to a maintained system, e.g. Redmine. We will provide a migration script later. In the meantime, you can use the instructions by Christian Daehn.
Donations (Task #45)
From: Sikh Nerd
When a project like this forks, a lot of people will come out of the woodwork interested in helping out. Beyond the obvious code, docs,etc a lot of people are willing to donate cash. Who/how/what is our solution to this? As we don't have a legal org yet, this may be a bit of a finnacky question. At the very least we need a paypal donate button that goes to one of us for now. Long-term we need a transparent solution to what happens with the money and some accountability in the whole process.
One potential candidate for something like that might be fundry.From their FAQ:
- Fundry is a new way to fund software development. It enables software users to fund particular features they want developed, and in turn enables the software developer to get paid for that development. Win win.
- For any pledge that is successful, Fundry will apply a 5% fee. Fundry doesn't apply a fee to donations.
(A long shot might also be to integrate it in some way with ChiliProject to streamline the experience/usage.)
Well, I really like the transparence of fundry (showing how much has already been donated/pledged), but we could use both fundry and paypal if fundry is considered too much of a hassle.
I think we should consider some sort of "vote with your wallet" way for users wanting to sponsor some specific feature though.
