2. Being able to disperse funds to people capable of taking paid/sponsored
MapGuide development work.
This one is probably the more important point. There might be a perception
in this project that I am the main developer in this project, which is
probably true, but my current situation at the present is such
that while I am capable and happy to work on MapGuide development on a
volunteering basis, I cannot personally accept any kind of financial
sponsorship for MapGuide development work.
I want interested developers who are able to take on sponsored MapGuide
development work to be able take on such work and be easily financially
compensated for it.
Everything mentioned here is equally applicable to FDO as well.
Based on these concerns, I had a look at open collective
(https://opencollective.com/) which seems to ticks most of the boxes in
terms of being able to easily:
- Collect donation/sponsorship funds
- Displaying and showcasing backers/sponsors
- Providing the means of managing and dispersing funds for various
Would it be worth us to set up an open collective account? Are there other
services in this space?
