Hi John and everybody,

given the reminders that Debian refrains from paying developers for
their time, I wonder if it would still be possible to make a small
contribution that expresses Debian's interest and sympathy to your goal,
with the hope that our name will help the crowdfunding effort.
Something on a scale that would allow us to answer positively to similar
requests without putting a significant burden on our finances... Maybe
$100 ?  This is the same amount as what Debian is willing to reimburse
for travel costs to bug-squashing parties, for instance.

Have a nice day,
