sponsorship lists now automatically generated

Richard Duivenvoorde
Hi,

We now (well not all languages, but at least english...) have the
sponsorlist automatically generated from the atom feeds:

https://qgis.org/en/site/about/sponsorship.html

(it is possible that the styling is not right yet for you (should not be
blue text), but that is a caching thingie... will be better after
tomorrow...

Please check if all ok.

Note that the logo's come from projecta (changelog.qgis.org), which does
not have https, so you can get a warning about mixed content.

Also, if you have (easy to do ;-) ) tips about better styling, let me
know (or do it).

Some logo's from the same level (gold/silver...), are bigger the others
because I size them only in one direction.... so maybe to have even more
equally sized logo's it would be nice to add some white so some (or
resize them).

So now no more adding/removing/moving manually of sponsors...!!
Let the sponsors roll in :-)

Regards,

Richard Duivenvoorde

PS lists are generated via some javascript magic based on the following
atom feeds:

Thanks a lot Richard! It was so painful to keep it updated.
I noticed that some orgs are repeated twice (e.g. gaia,
Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead).
Also, I do not see them linked to sponsor website, is this OK?
All the best.

Yep, I've noticed that too, but that is something that should be fixed
in our 'administration' site: apparently this donations are recorded
twice (as in they really have 2 records).

It is up to Andreas to check if this is an error, OR if they paid for
bronze twice. ...

In addition:

Hovering over the text you go to the actual 'sponsoring' administration
site. Not sure if we removed the link to that actual sponsorsites as
part of our 'not for profit' status?

For what I can see the link is available as part of the data of every
sponsor, but it is NOT in the atom feed we use to create the list:

http://changelog.qgis.org/en/qgis/sponsors/atom/

So technically it is possible to get it in the atom feed, and then in
the site. But I think Andreas has to tell us that.

Regards,

Richard

Re: sponsorship lists now automatically generated

Andreas Neumann-3
Hi Richard,

Thank you for including the sponsors feed from the changelog site.

I removed the double entries. They probably appeared, because I sometimes got error messages in "projecta" and I wasn't sure if the data was really recorded.

I noticed that the feed is not fully "live" - is it cached? If yes, what triggers the update of the list? The double entries still appear at https://www.qgis.org/en/site/about/sponsorship.html , although they are now removed from "projecta".

Two more issues:
1. I think it would make sense to remove the "Amount sponsored" line. It is primarily for myself to keep track of the actual payments, but it may "confuse" people, because the amount sometimes doesn't match the exact levels. So better remove this information.
2. The links of the individual sponsors go the the "changelog" site, but they should link to the website of the sponsor

I know that I discussed removing the links to the sponsors due to tax reasons - but a) that is still an incentive for sponsor to get an URL to the website and b) the taxes only apply if sponsorship money bypasses the threshold of 150k CHF, which is still not the case.

Other than that I am very happy that I don't have to maintain two separate lists!

Many thanks,
Andreas
