I don't often recommend hackfests but wouldn't that be a way to get stuff done on CKAN?

Subject: [@OKau] How can we fund important Open Source projects?

I wrote this from the perspective of a commercial company owner/operator but am very interested in a more broad perspective from those who value the for-good benefit of open data.


Would you put $5 toward a github pull request every so often and help fund developers around the world in making contributions toward open source projects?

Please note I've raise the potential of running a trial via OK Australia's books if there was interest, so such a thing would be pending approval from our executive Board :)
