I actually do think accepting corporate funding deserves a try.
I do as well, so long as it doesn’t introduce any legal busywork. I will have to educate myself more about how Open Collective handles this, though.
Here’s what I’m hearing in this thread so far:
- A group of maintainers, approved by @paf31, has access to a server which manages the *.purescript.org resources and to the relevant repositories
- Infrastructure costs are covered by a PureScript Open Collective account, funded by companies which use PureScript
Next steps include:
- Anyone else who is interested in helping maintain the projects mentioning that so that @paf31 is aware of them and can eventually sign off on the group
- @hdgarrood setting up the new server (having already volunteered to do so)
- Someone with maintainer access to
purescript/purescriptseeing if they can claim the open collective account (@hdgarrood again?)
- @chexxor and I moving the Discourse over to the new server
And once some of these steps are completed, there’s:
- The new group of maintainers should receive SSH access to the server and maintainer access to the relevant repositories (like Try PureScript)
- Those of us who believe our companies will support PureScript-the-organization asking the relevant people in our organization for a monthly or yearly pledge
Side note: especially with all his work to improve Try PureScript last year, I’d like to nominate @natefaubion to be a part of this as well.
