So far almost 600 people (and companies) have donated to the FreeBSD Foundation, but the $300.000 target hasn’t been achieved yet: the counter stands at $166.381.
What does the FreeBSD Foundation do?
We fund and manage projects, sponsor FreeBSD events, Developer Summits and provide travel grants to FreeBSD developers. We provide and help maintain computers and equipment that support FreeBSD development and improvements. We also represent the Project in executing contracts, license agreements, copyrights, trademarks, and other legal arrangements that require a recognized legal entity.
FreeBSD 8.0 has been released now. If you’re a happy FreeBSD user and want to support the development of FreeBSD 9, why not make a (small) donation? More people have donated this year than before. Any amount counts.
