Pirate Praveen Public Seen by 343

We run many services listed here https://wiki.fsci.org.in/index.php/Category:Services so far we have been looking at individuals sponsoring each stuff. Vik from Hamara linux is interested to sponsor more services annually. We need some volunteers to prepare and maintain our budget (basically just ask around people and collect expenses and find out annual expense).

Ask around and find the expenses we have on services we maintain and combine them.

I hope we will be using GNUKhata or GNUCash; GNUCash has a mobile front-end also

Hi, I can help by donating money up to 1500. I'm not sure if that's enough. But just wanna support free software community. Will that help to maintain a domain for an year?

I think a simple wiki page will be enough for now and if it grows more complex, we can look for more heavy tools.

That can cover 3 domains per year. Any contribution is welcome and we are able to sustain it because lots of people contribute small amounts.

Thanks! Once we close the poll, we will know who all are interested and you folks can talk to each other and start working on it.

Just an update: These are the services we currently maintain https://wiki.fsci.org.in/index.php/Category:Services (loomio and mailman services are coming up). so major costs are domains and hosting.

I would be more inclined to support the funding of a part time employee who could take care of fsci admin and some technical work.

Please let me know how to send the contribution. I prefer a project related to educational field, if available. :slight_smile:

@athul @appoox @tanzeem @ranjithsiji currently the funds are managed by @sruthi @bhe and @bady , domains cost managed by @tvm . Talk to them and collect the expense details and create a wiki page at wiki.fsci.org.in

https://wiki.fsci.org.in/index.php/Domains_Managed has the list of domains we manage. https://wiki.fsci.org.in/index.php/Budget is the skeleton (major heads for our expenses).

You could create a matrix room for coordination (sub groups can't be created until we migrate to our own loomio instance). Other options are lists.fsci.org.in and freesoftwareindia.org. If you want to wait, codema.fsci.org.in should be ready soon (as soon as we get data from loomio.org team).

currently a matrix room will be a best option.

Please create one room room and invite people who showed interest.
