  2. Donations vs Sponsorship initiatives
    • There are two different concepts involving money:
      • Donation: is to give money without expecting nothing in return, just to be a good citizen, the project decides how to use those resources
      • Sponsorship: there's a clear goal in mind when the money is given. It has a purpose and the sponsor expects something in return.
    • @chuckboecking repeated the message during the conference of companies making a revenue from iDempiere donating the equivalent to 100 USD monthly to support the project
    • On the other hand, many implementers have mentioned to me that we need a way to handle sponsorship via crowd-funding for developments that benefit everyone in the community
    • We want to try and explore the idea of crowd funded developments. We discuss in a future meeting the guidelines and procedure.
    • We discuss in another meeting how to communicate the donate message proposed by @chuckboecking.
    • We would like to try first a donation campaign communicating what we need and expect and why we need it.
