Backers - making it happen
The project is being funded by backers who want to see a body of Open Source code appear in the industry. Backers may be product vendors, integrators, production companies, Billion Dollar multi-nationals or Contract Programmers working from home. The goal is to get a large number of people to make small donations to help get the software written,
- 80% of funds raised will be given away as grants
- 20% of funds raised will be used to run the project
Backers make two donations - one in calendar year 2023 and one in 2024. The more we raise, the more software we can commission. The numbers below are the minimum for each backer tier.
