Considering to donate?
Thanks for considering to donate. You can contact the individual developers and send them money, preferably by wiring (for Germans: Banküberweisung). An alternative is using Paypal which is not throughoutly tested, and – as usual, if a third party gets involved – may lead to problems, such as your donation being lost.
After a successful donation, you may be listed below – this is an opt-in, and you must explicitly state that. Please note that some persons who donate webhosting, domains etc. are not listed on this page; they can be found here instead..
Support through partnership
Google has terminated tg@'s account just before the first payment was about to be issued (I had accumulate about 140 USD I think) due to "abuse" – I know I haven't abused the system and didn't ask someone to, so I don't know what to think about it. I've sent an enquiring eMail but didn't get any reponse at all and since I can't login I don't have access to the statistics for researching this either. Sorry guys. If everyone of you sends an € via eg. PayPal it'll help even better, not support a monopoly, and one Euro doesn't hurt you either.
Of course, we're always interested in other things as well. Travel expenses, food at the exhibitions, hardware (please don't ask us to support other architectures than i386 and sparc32).
For wiring money please contact the developers directly, preferably by phone or eMail. It's generally considered unsafe to leave the bank account data on the www. You may also contact the mailing list for all developers and ask.
Please do not send large amounts of money through snail mail, as it can easily get lost. Please don't send currencies other than the Euro (€) to European developers either.
Note: it’s unknown whether the below form still works. Send Paypal things to email@example.com directly.
If you don’t like Paypal, you can do it like someone else did: get Euro banknotes from your local bank, wrap them inside the letter, wrap that in black cardboard, put that into an envelope and snail-mail that (for an amazing US$1.15 postange) to me. (It worked once.) Talk to me via eMail before that, to get the address and so I expect it. This particularily avoids the about US$60 bank transfer fees, but of course can get lost in transit ☹
