DistroWatch to Support Free Software Projects

ladislav writes "DistroWatch is proud to announce an initiative to offer financial assistance to Free Software projects. The extent of this assistance will be set to 10% of DistroWatch\'s income from advertising, sale of merchandise and related services, and can initally be expected to reach between US$150 to US$500 per month. These funds will be donated to various Free Software projects as determined by the maintainers, contributors and visitors of DistroWatch. The donations will have no strings attached.

The first benefactors of this initiative will be the GnuCash project and the Debian GNU/Linux project.

DistroWatch would also like to challenge all Linux web sites, large or small, to set up a similar fund."
