[Linux-aus] Linux Australia Donations Scheme!

Hi all!

As mentioned in the summary of the weekend meeting we had in February, 
we've been wanting to help projects accept donations from users. The 
first phase of that's now up, and we're accepting donations for Debian 
and Samba. Have a look at


We're trying to be pretty careful about how we do this, so we don't make 
too much work for ourselves, don't break the law, and don't tread on 
people's toes; so any comments would be appreciated!

Samba and Debian have talked with Linux Australia a few times in the 
past about using our facilities for accepting donations, so they were 
the obvious first step. If there are other projects who've got an 
immediate use for or interest in this please feel free to contact the 
committee -- at the moment we want to keep the number of projects pretty 
small, but we're not at all averse to adding a few more projects already.

We'd really like to get some experience with collecting money, and 
getting it spent on useful things for projects -- so if you've recently 
been thinking how wonderful Debian or Samba are and wondering how you 
could contribute, please do feel encouraged to send in some money. :)

Anyway, hope that makes sense, and if you've got any questions or 
comments, please don't hesitate to post :)
