Take 3 minutes to help KDE e.V. finance a sprint

OpenSource development is a fun thing to do. You can form the tools for your daily work to your liking. You can make other people happy by fulfilling their wishes. And sometimes you meet the people you work with on a personal level. Those meetings are always a highlight and also a big push forward in development and for motivation.

KDE regularly organizes “Sprints” so that people can meet. Real-world meetings use real-world money, though. So sponsorships and donations are welcome. Currently the German bank DiBaDu offers sponsorship for the most voted 1000 associations.

Only 3 days left (until 15.11.2011, 17:00CET), and KDE needs some more votes to be in.
Please take 3 minutes of your time and vote for KDE. It’s easy (english explanation)

Vote for KDE

You have 3 votes. And all can go to KDE. Thanks for your time.

    Is a 1000 bucks really so important that it needs 5 planet-kde posts?

    (Also, if instead of going through the lengthy voting procedure for three votes, each voter would instead have simply donated 1 € to KDE ev. directly, it would already total a lot more than 1000 €…)


    • 1000€ will finance up to 10 flights. So – yes – it is helpful, and in my opinion a couple of posts don’t hurt. Actually I would have liked to have even more announcements, for example on http://www.kde.org.
      Having various options on the kind of involvment is also not a bad thing. You can either donate once, vote or get a supportive member on http://jointhegame.kde.org/.

      PS: KDE was pushed forward 250 places in the day after my post, but now has lost 200 again. Current place is 993.


  4. Does this maybe help to get some people to work on a kmix plasmoid or at least some decent pulseaudio support?
