Will there be other options?
Direct Deposit, Paypal or Credit Card?
I had an itchy clicky-finger but I long ago forgot how to work stamps.

> 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
> 	http://www.linux.org.au/projects/donations/
> 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 :)
