Bought a shirt. Might buy another if I get a job in the near future. Might buy 3 more if I get a job and the pay actually improves over my last job.

DR, thanks for your leadership and efforts that made Gentoo the best Linux distro out there!

1 x T-Shirt ($12)
3 x $1 donation

but the real killer... ~$9 for shipping to Australia, which I know doesn't go to Daniel... oh well...

I knew I should have purchased when the Australian dollar was stronger...

$20 from me.

It would be nice to hear how much of the $20,000 has been paid off with recent donations.

Well, counting the numbers in this thread, a very rough estimate is about $4500 has been donated and posted about in this thread.
Probably some more people that didn't post but did donate :p

I would like to help Daniel out of his predicament, but I refuse to enrich a stinkin' lawyer who is filing paperwork to set-up the non-profit Gentoo foundation.

I think I understand the sentiment, but it's important to realize that drobbins was working very hard on the non-profit set-up before leaving Gentoo. I am not sure, because I'm not involved, but I assume that the not-for-profit setup paperwork was done by Gentoo volunteers.

I helped set up a non-profit organization in New Mexico, a local Habitat for Humanity affiliate here in Socorro. We worked part-time for the better part of a *year* to get the paperwork in order for filing.

It's like doing your taxes: you do most of the work. The filing fees are negligible, probably not more than $250.

But when you see "Donations go towards helping us set up the non-profit", you could read that as "Donations help feed Gentoo volunteers while they do terrible amounts of paper-work"!

Well, I hope that robbins is better off fromt the donations. I doubt he got a bad job if he has one, even with the employment rate so shitty.


Thank you Daniel for the best distro ever. I will never let Gentoo die, for it can't with the amount of people who run it.
