The folks at FundOSS should be providing an update regarding the status and timing of the program this week.
Here’s more info on the funding model -
Democratic Funding amplifies a single voice. On a systemic level, it optimizes the distribution of the matching in a more democratic distribution of contribution. “Small” donations can be supercharged () In past campaigns, a $1 contribution has yielded up to $150 in matching funds.
Democratic Funding can turn individual donations into powerful signals of exponential monetary value. FUNDOSS is a pilot program where success relies on the activation your networks. So sign up now, contribute to the fund, refer a friend, and get excited! We hope this is the first match of many.
Assuming LibreTime is accepted (chances again are good), are there particular goals or outcomes we’d like to accomplish with this type of campaign? Would a successful campaign help those already working on 3.0 release blockers?
What would entice a large number of stations and other types of users to make a small donation during a two-week campaign?
What about a 3.0 + solid API made available on something like the DigitalOcean Marketplace?
