Continuing the discussion from Crowd-funding campaign:
Indeed they are enought to maintan the project as currently the fundation has not so much costs (IIRC only accounting and hosting the servers). So with small amount we can continue the project.
Funding developer time for Tryton is not so important because there are several companies on the ecosystem which can be hired to develop features. So the funds normally go to this companies and the companies contribute back to the project.
Having said that I think there is also room to improve and I like the proposal of having some goals to incentivate the amounts raised. IIRC we’ve done in the past and the amount of donations increased.
Main problem is the lack of time of the foundation board. For example we currently have received some success stories which are not part of the website because nobody sumbited a patch for the website. So I’m wondering if it will be good to professionalize this tasks (by hiring someone to do them) and requests donations to pay them.
On the other hand we have the services providers page which is currently free and we may request a yearly donation to the foundation to be listed there. We currently have 15 service providers, so for example at 300€/year it will be 4500€ for the foundation.
This are my personal toughts but before going further I think the tryton comunity should raise their voice to give their opinion on the topic. If there is a general agreement we can move forward.
