With Flarum version 1 on the horizon, we are hoping to see actively used extensions to be patched as soon as possible. The @FriendsOfFlarum team has been doing a great job in resurrecting and maintaining extensions for many betas. But their time is valuable too and the weight of maintaining all these extensions cannot be underestimated.
To support the efforts of the FoF team I just set up a project under the Flarum Foundation to work as a fund for the upgrade.
I'm working on approval from the Foundation Board to get a donation passed over to this fund. But in the meantime I've already donated $ 50 personally - under Hyn. In addition @glowingblue has also promised to support this initiative.
Please, I ask all our Flarum fans to support the upgrade of these extensions so that more people can enjoy Flarum. The goal is to raise at least $ 2.000 to allow for one week full time work at a $ 50 per hour rate. The developers from FoF can then file expenses to the fund as compensation to pay rent, get groceries etc.
