You are already getting my code contributions completely free, so IMHO you should be satisfied with people making general donations to TDF instead of ever nagging them via infobars. So I still think this is a bad idea.

Hello everyone,

In recent versions of LibreOffice, we have an infobar that's
periodically displayed at the top of the screen, including some text and
a link. Currently the configuration is:

* 90 days after installation: show a "Get involved" button

* 180 days after installation: show a "Donate to support our community"

We know that the donate infobar results in a lot of donations; people
using LibreOffice for six months are (hopefully!) still satisfied.

So the question is: should we change how often these are shown? We don't
want to "nag" anybody, but at the same time, one bar every three months
isn't much, I think, given that users get a completely free office
suite. IMO we could show the "get involved" bar after two months, and
the "donate" after four -- but what do others think?
