Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

Per initial discussion of difficulty for people to donate to Debian ATM:


postgresql's way to channel donations was suggested as an example. Here is a
relevant extract from an IRC session:

13:28   Hydroxide: yoh, slef, bkuhn: also, postgresql has a more customized donation flow if you want to see that
13:29   Hydroxide: http://www.postgresql.org/about/donate_pg_org/
13:35   Hydroxide: yoh: if debian's web team wants info on how to do that, either have someone loop in treasurer@spi-inc.org aka schultmc, or possibly ask jberkus because he probably did it on the postgres side
13:35   Hydroxide: or knows who did
13:35   jberkus: Hydroxide: Drake set it up
13:35   Hydroxide: ok

Please review http://www.postgresql.org/about/donate_pg_org -- IMHO it would be
benefitial for our project to ease donation mechanisms.  And having such a
simple form by default instead of many hoops to jump to finally donate should
have an effect.  We could even create a simple small banner for "Donate to
Debian" with such a dropbox to be used on pages outside of debian.org (e.g. on
