I would love to but I just don't have the necessary knowledge and skills to do a good job at it. If we had a piggy bank, it would come in handy to pay for skills when contributors are running low though, surely?

Well, for the moment, the very best way to contribute back to Apache NetBeans is to be involved here:

In fact, that's more useful at this stage than money. :-)

Maybe a NetBeans field -- BeanField -- as in a field where beans are grown.

Thanks for the enthusiasm. :-) As an Apache project, NetBeans will not be able to earn money directly -- all money coming into Apache goes to the foundation as a whole:

However, potentially, there could be an organization that we set up together comparable to Tomitribe (tomitribe.com), i.e., Apache TomEE (tomee.apache.org) has an external organization that provides support and so on -- and also receives money. I.e., we could have a NetBeans Tribe or something like that, which could offer advanced features or maybe fix bugs on demand or something like that, in exchange for money.

Just a thought, though something for the future, if at all.

Hi all

Like all of you, I use NetBeans to build my own projects. Lately I've noticed a particular competitor IDE being demanded more on job specs and wondered how they managed to grow so big so quick. Turns out they sell licenses as well as offering a free version. I, myself, as a user feel guilty benefitting as much as I do from NetBeans and never having to pay a dime for it, even though I would absolutely do so in a heartbeat given the opportunity. Is there any way that NetBeans can make some income to support its longevity?
