I'd like to see things get going for Xen as well and could probably gather some money from myself and other users and companies I know about locally (probably up to $500), but probably only if dom0 will be included, as I'm not particularly interested in domU. OTOH, domU is better than nothing... If the Xen-savvy developers get interested, I could also donate time and probably resources to create a coordinating web site. Everyone should keep in mind two things: 1) It's doubtful that there will be as many interested people that would donate to accumulate more than about $1000-2000, I think, which isn't much for the complexity of the work. There should really be some businesses interested simply because they can probably invest more money. 2) Individual monetary contributions cannot be by default handled by some proxy person (without much legal footwork); they will need to go directly from the source to the developer. Probably the best idea would be for the developers to set individual Paypal accounts. (for example: one person, or the Foundation, cannot gather money for such a project and then transfer it in bulk to developers). _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-xen To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-xen-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
