How is this Discourse instance hosted at the moment?
It’s hosted on a Digital Ocean server owned by @chexxor, and I perform updates via ssh.
What do you mean by *.purescript.org resources being held by an organization rather than a private server?
I mean this conceptually, not legally; a group of people (the organization) has the ability to manage *.purescript.org resources because that group has the knowledge and access necessary to do so. I would rather that things like Try PureScript, the Discourse, Pursuit, the home page, etc. are opened to that group both wrt maintaining the repositories and access to perform maintenance on the server.
I’m not endorsing a legal entity, if only because I don’t know what that would entail.
EDIT: Though, now that I think of it, an informal group of maintainers might not tangle well with accepting funding. For now costs are so low that funding is more of a side issue than anything else, so not a problem, but perhaps we’ll require something more formal in the future. For the time being, perhaps a responsibility of being a ‘maintainer’ could include pitching in for the infrastructure costs. With 4 maintainers that would work out to about $5 a month each.
