Re: Report from DSA Team Sprint in Oslo

regarding donations:

I am wondering -- is there significant additional
bureaucratic/infrastructural burden of adding additional
relatively easy to "engage" into lines for "micro-donations", e.g.

- automated regular (e.g. monthly) donations via paypal
  (e.g. how http://accessiblecomputingfoundation.org does it)

- Android market App (could be just for donations or  actually ship
  Debian background/theme)

Quite a few *Debian booth visitors ask on how to donate and we direct
them to the website etc... I bet many forget/nevermind to mess with it
later, so wouldn't it be nice just to carry qr-code's for paypal and
Android "Play Store" so donating for them would be as easy as to
point camera to it right on the spot... ?
