Haiku Inc.: Contractors (yes more!), Donation Analysis, and Google Checkout
In this installment, we are proud to announce Ingo Weinhold's contract, a brief summary of our donation history, and a new method for accepting donations.
Ingo has been accepted for a contract: 160 hours for $2,000 USD total. His tasks will focus on these areas
- Bug fixing & improving the kernel and related systems
- Testing and improving POSIX compliance
- R1 Alpha 2 release coordination
Below is a brief analysis of our PayPal donations over the past six months. During that time, about $1,100 USD has been donated strictly through recurring donations. On top of that, about $2,000 USD was donated as one-time donations, with over half of that being raised in February alone! As you can see, there was a noticeable increase that coincides with our first announcement of hiring contractors. If you aren't a Haiku donor, please consider it; subscribing for even $5 or €5 a month can make a well appreciated improvement to Haiku Inc.'s abilities to continue accepting contractors.
