        Please CC me on replies, since I'm not subscribed to the list, and
can't follow all lists in linear time [ as you do so curse reply-to:
mangling please ;-].

done. ;-) Reply-to-mangling is a topic on the moderators list, and I hope to have a fix in place soon.

        The donate page looks substantially better these days - which is

I simply forwarded all challenge-pages to the donation page at the LibreOffice site itself, so we at least remove the "we don't need any more money" notion. ;-)

encouraging. I suggest we add the pretty piggy-bank logo on the download
page, at the bottom/right to point at this page too as/when we have
polished it up.

Cc'ing the website list, as I like that idea.
Can someone have a look on this?

        I think the current text is rather good.

        I'd sort the SPI link to the top though, and the flatr link below
paypal, and have some side-by-side divs with the huge Fries Office
address&  bank details block on the right. Hopefully that'll get it into
a single page.

Sounds good. Same question here, Cc'ing the website list: Anyone wants to work on that?

        I also think that something graphical would be really helpful here; a
single rotating image as on the front-page, with a caption of: "how we
spend your money" - with a selection of a pictures:

        Image / embedded caption:
        Munich Hack-Fest - hack fests to work on the code
        Paris / LibreOffice conf - conferences to co-ordinate and excite
        generic? server hardware - hardware to host infrastructure
        Italo at some conference - travel subsidy for speakers
        ODF plug-fest picture - standards work to enhance ODF

That's exactly what we wanted, indeed. Showing how we actually spend the money. I consider a general polishing up of the page plus linking from the download site most crucial, but the above proposal would be a very nice addendum to that, so... volunteers? ;-)

        Or somesuch ? if people agree, I can help put the images together and
make a mess of them to the point that someone clueful is provoked to do
it right ? :-)


        Wrt. the text, I'd move the "we prefer volunteers" rubric from the
bottom up, and say:

        "You are encouraged to send cash donations by one of these

        or somesuch, with a bit more cosmetic text tweaking as we put it in
place. How does that sound ?
