Subject Re: Fund Groovy Development - Jira Task
Date Sun, 11 Mar 2018 15:53:00 GMT
Hi Daniel,

thank you. I have thought (and discussed with my wife) at length about 
getting seriously involved in the devlopment of the Groovy language, but 
due to a multitude of reasons I cannot make that commitment at this 
point in time.
So I was thinking maybe more people feel the same way, and would instead 
like to give money to further "The language that is Groovy" ( (C) ;-) ).

We'll have to see how this goes, I have just posted the funding message 
to the Groovy Slack 

I guess 1000+ Groovers pledging e.g 5 to 10 EUR/$ per month would also 
go a long way to helping Groovy grow, but here I feel at least the 
Paypal address o.s. where the money shall flow should come from the 
"Lifetime Achievement Groovy Award" holders who are most active on the 
mailing list etc (Paul, Jochen, etc), and the funding Paypal link should 
go on the main Groovy web page. The important thing here would be to get 
people to commit to regular funding...
