As mentioned in the announcement, all donations made via Open Collective will be paid directly to developers who have been hired to work on the open source edition of Qubes. ITL will not see or benefit from any of that money. All from donated funds should be transparently visible to everyone on our Open Collective page. Does this address your concern? - -- Andrew David Wong (Axon) Community Manager, Qubes OS https://www.qubes-os.org -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- iQIcBAEBCgAGBQJYRSrmAAoJENtN07w5UDAwUqIP/RYxE5CfTfzfYh7c3g3KSid/ x4o04p36NtNEvycrQ3GrjVl1o36BRG1VRxC2/IGT2zJVFrL6hRcwAfq2EAW3nITZ sgVHtblyr45y4sKvm0ZXCBnIGIt04yo/6gy40enLuy7lz4HHY5xXsyxvui1M7/zW LyLgWdIcNbBhhwYz/8sCp5yZxJX7a5gMiumNxa74b6fwPa7bMi83w67k1JDbduVJ VO54Kkf/JTc28BWdEIGRYJ/k+1APibRq6RNRbTCGs6JQWHK2Z8ZIW3a7HBr8eW38 u2N+BSmzF1iKzlcBimK6K25ERQRaQuW0q5BdfjEmHKDarMrBQ2YnAyVUjBbLDdDy tcMlt9M3xbnlwnXP62S7/2qdmqKl40/tJ/Y61kK3uVhaetJ/U2AOVkQI+f1CFKGy s1eT7/gSm2C9oafcFzPWWvRzB9HMFDUpU7gQ6+kvxx1PJtJx4J2/oGiz+VVp1cQ5 1LjwZMVaDfrmHlAiN4y/UM4LLK7pWkLrbUhBSh6GvO/AIyd7+XA+Y3Ps/gtiKegd VoYLpQ64MBdAw4YOfcx9+IRVtAGGRhHMjY+pu91SJpNJ7rCJKHbvuhCEF3X+Yq+0 uVxivVOOCB7KNjqqFrn6MpTY4r0/u9Pdk0YAfMVVRKcICHRUu5MwIrCc9BMduAMG ocLaz94qaDRirvjNZJRR =0cWy -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
