So the donation or Challenge site is really no longer a challenge site
but an ongoing request for funding? Or is the Challenge site going to be
closed at the end of the 21st of March?

If it is an ongoing request for funding, we should perhaps tie it in
with the LibreOffice--> Get Involved --> Donors section of the site. I
like the idea of having the Challenge site as it is very informative
from the point of view of informing donors of the reasons behind the
idea of the request for funds.

blame me, I missed to clarify. :-)

The challenge indeed was meant for the capital stock and should run until March 21st. We now have the capital stock, so the initial challenge is no more. However, I didn't want to stop that site just after eight days.

My plan is to leave it online until March 21st (and we can add that date back again, of course, seems I removed it during the page renewal), and then have a generic page.

Bernhard already asked me about it - sorry if my reply was rude. I've been working for nearly two weeks for TDF, so I really need some days off for working on my "real life". :-) We can do the donation page, but at the moment, I cannot contribute technically nor with content.

But, in short, the plan is: Leave the challenge page until March 21st, in the meantime prepare a generic donation page, and use that from now on. We still can decide if it should have a counting banner (why not).
