Hi :)
An existing back-end for Base has just put out an announcement.  If you are interested in helping 
Base get better then it's probably best to get involved with TDF's devs rather than going to this 
back-end but it would be nice if some people were in both projects (imo).  

Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: [MariaDB Announce] Contributing to MariaDB

Like all Open Source projects, MariaDB thrives because of the community
around it. We've been asked on many occasions "What can I do to help?"
and we direct people to our "Contributing" page in the MariaDB
Knowledgebase as a good starting point:

The above page lists various ways to contribute to MariaDB including
obvious things like helping with development, reporting bugs, creating
test cases, helping with documentation and translation, and so on.

For those who want to support the project but don't have software
development or other technical skills to offer, we have a donations

This page details how you can donate things like CPU time to run a
buildslave, among other things. It also, by request, includes a PayPal
donate button for those who prefer to support MariaDB that way.

The PayPal button is great, but we thought it would be nice for people
who donate to get something physical in return. Inspired by the EFF,
NPR, PBS, and other non-profit entities, we thought it would be neat to
create a donations page that offered an exclusive t-shirt or other item
in return for a donation. One of the quickest ways to do this is
through CafePress, so that's what we've done:

Please check it out and let us know what you think!*

All proceeds go directly to support MariaDB development, so don't think
of it as purchasing a t-shirt, think of it as donating to support a
worthy project and awesome product... and you get a t-shirt as a nice
