Hi Florian,

Of course, there are many other possibilities, but what I think is
important is to give people a picture where there is a need. If for
example in infra we had the freedom to simply buy a dozen new machines,
things would be way better, but a dozen of machines cost amount XYZ.

What we effectively need now is a (senseful) wishlist from the various
teams. Think of it as a Christmas wishlist: You write a dozen things on
it, eventually you get two or three, which is fantastic!

Besides the infrastructure and cost for ongoing operations, I can also
imagine some developer machines are required, more travel funding, a
marketing campaign, funds to produce collaterals and swags for giving
them away, and many more.

My proposal is to create a wiki page, asking the various groups to write
down their wishes, and eventually "distill" a wishlist out of that.

Does that sound senseful? Are there any volunteers for mailing the
various lists and compiling an initial wiki page?

For all the other ideas (donation period and the like), I'd like to
postpone them to when we have the initial round running. I like those
ideas, but first we should come up with a compelling list of things we
need and want to fund.

Does that sound senseful?

Yes, that does sound quite reasonable. IMO, though, we should always make sure the infrastructure keeps pace with our growth as the first priority, but I am sure that that is one of the priorities already agreed to by all.

Yes great idea and it will get some of our teams talking together again. The list would then be prioritized along the lines of first -- "needs" followed by the "wish-list"?
