Title: Kicad donations
Post by: mark03 on July 22, 2018, 09:20:55 pm
This might be old news but I just noticed:  On the Kicad home page there is now a link for contributing $$ to the development team at CERN:   https://givetokicad.web.cern.ch/   They are pitching it as support for ~600 labor hours toward the next major release (6.0).

I just made a donation and would challenge others here to do the same.  With some of the key usability problems finally addressed in the 5.0 release, IMO now is the time to capitalize on that and help build momentum.

They've been helping me out with a couple of bugs that I've reported, so I'm going to make a small donation some time later today as thanks.
