Currently in Debian, the DebConf team and DSA seek donations from sponsors, but there has been no central effort to coordinate this work.

The debian-sponsors-discuss list was recently created to discuss how to coordinate things better, and to look at new ways of fundraising for Debian.


I've been on and off involved with DebConf fundraising since DC10, and have some observations and ideas that have developed over the years. (I brought this up to Zack, and he encouraged me to get together with like minded folks and see what we can come up with, hence this list, and this discussion.) Please consider it a starting point for discussion, and feel free to add any ideas you might have.
