As you said in (2), `According to official Apache policy, the ASF doesn't accept "cash for code"`, I am not sure we can create open collective for "apache/groovy"(BTW, I can not access "apache/groovy" via my github account). If we can not use "apache/groovy" to create open collective, "groovy/groovy-core" may be better, but we have to explain the reason in the open collective. > Also, while the Android Groovy Gradle plugin is no doubt a worthy > recipient of additional funds, I would be inclined to keep it simple and > focus on core Groovy for now. Agreed. > this would need to be a community-driven effort rather than an official > Apache organised activity Yep. That's the reason why I sent the email via my personal hotmail. > The wording could say "Friends of Groovy", or "All Things Groovy" (to > mimic the facebook group) or "Gr8 Technologies" rather than "Apache Groovy > project" or similar. "I would be inclined to keep it simple and focus on core Groovy for now. ", I think wording focuses on core Groovy would be better, e.g. "Groovy Programming Language"? > I suspect, we (as the Apache project) would need to maintain oversight of > the collective to make sure of this.

The opencollective site will record all "contribute" and "submit expense", which is open to all people, e.g. https://opencollective.com/vuejs#budget > (4) While sponsorship is below what we'd like and below what it has been > at some previous points in Groovy life, it isn't 0.

Let's imagine that would be really great if more people involve into developing Groovy, more big features(e.g. MOP2, async/await) are completed and hard issues(e.g. generics of STC) are fixed every year :-) Cheers, Daniel.Sun -- Sent from: http://groovy.329449.n5.nabble.com/Groovy-Users-f329450.html
