Hey fellow Neos community,
Because of the split of Neos and TYPO3, we’have been investigating how to send funds to the Neos project independently of the TYPO3 Association – which can be used e.g. to organize code sprints, pay travel costs or needed development (like time-critical security fixes).
We, the Neos Team, currently do not want to create a formal association, but try to stay in a more “informal” structure.
At the meeting in Munich where we discussed the first part of the Neos Split, my company Sandstorm Media has offered to act as “fundraiser” of the Neos team, where Sandstorm will handle the payment process, and the Neos team will decide in an public and democratic fashion what to do with the money which was raised then. The Neos team has gladly accepted the offer, and we’ve since then preparing the infrastructure for the funding process.
The full description of the proposed funding process can be found over at google docs. Furthermore, over at http://monosnap.com/image/OeUgslAymr2ycXTv1sEDY9Z0hsWOgI# you will find the current draft on how the spending process should work.
We’re currently finalizing the details of the process; and hope to go live with it soon.
We’re looking forward to your comments and will keep you updated in here
All the best, Sebastian
