Hi :)
aaargh, that looks far more sensible than this thread is ready for.  Back on track!  I like the 
stepped idea so that people can have an idea of what is being aimed for.
Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-marketing] donation meter

Sigh... There does not seem to be actual marketer on this list. Anyway,
here's my proposal:

* 50k euros : infra for 1 year
* 90k euros: infra & one paid, half time resource to infra administration
* 100k: one major marketing campaign (with global reach)
* 150k: infra for one year + one part time admin + funding of several local
ops and projects of common interest.
* 200k : a major feature development
* 300k : infra+ one infra admin + 1 major feature development

Hope this helps,

Hi :)
I agree that TDF is growing fast but is tripling in size each year

That was about the expenses/donation goal.
And  for that 3x the fixed costs for running the infrastructure is the
absolute minimum. If there weren't more donations than 3x the
infrastructure costs, we'd be in trouble/spend too much on
infrastructure :-)

The difference between contributors that are TDF-members and
LibreOffice contributors in general has been explained in another
