George [T]his is great, but donates are a great way to support the developer and motivate him to do more. It is also a source of development.
That's true. At this point, however, contributions are barely keeping up with expenses, and meet those expenses we must.
I think that we would both like to see the day when contributions will be sufficient to compensate team members. Right now, though, it seems to me that we need to make sure we keep the lights on. That was the reason for my focus.
I am grateful to the hundreds of community members who are helping keep Solus alive by making financial contributions, particularly those community members (Backers, Release Testers, Beta Testers, Crew) who make recurring monthly contributions. I'm hoping that your posts and mine might motivate others to join the effort.
Joining the team of financial contributors would be a good way to help the Solus Project at this transition point and demonstrate how important this project is to all of us.
