We've noticed that there are several recurring questions, so I'm going to consolidate the answers here and add to this as needed.
Q: Who runs Solus?
Solus is currently structured as multiple Teams. The Core Team is responsible for setting the direction and priorities of Solus, publishing new releases and syncing weekly, and making the final decisions on changes to Solus. The Global Maintainers are individuals who have previously demonstrated a strong commitment to the future of Solus by maintaining packages and providing user support. As Global Maintainers, they are granted the ability to directly push package updates to the Unstable repository and have been put in charge of the maintenance of certain sets of software.

Q: When will XYZ happen?
Solus does not provide Estimated Times of Arrival (ETAs) for anything. It's not that we don't like having deadlines, but that all of us are volunteers working on Solus in our free time. Life happens, Murphy's Law happens, and rather than disappoint you and ourselves by not meeting a predetermined ETA, we have decided it just works better not to have them.
Q: How can I contribute?
Q: How can I donate?
Short-Answer: We are not accepting donations at this time.
Long-Answer: Because Solus is not currently a company or partnered with a non-profit, all Tax burden falls on the person who owns the accounts where the donations are deposited. For me to do this personally, that would mean that I would have to set aside 10-20% of every dollar received for taxes in order to pay income tax on these donations. This is in addition to the taxes taken out when the provider (e.g. Patreon) accepts those donations (usually VAT for the country of origin) and the service charge to accept donations. This could easily mean that 25-40% of every donation is immediately consumed by taxes and we have decided that that is not acceptable. We are planning to become affiliated with a non-profit so that your donations will at most be subject to VAT and not income taxes. Until this situation has changed, we have decided not to accept donations.
