I've just published a new blog post describing our new fundraising campaign. TL;DR: We want to pay a Pull Request Manager to thin out the pull request queues and coordinate between relevant parties on newer pull requests so they don't go stale. We've launched a three-month campaign, and Nicholas Wilson has agreed to do the work.

We have high hopes that this will help reduce frustration for current and future contributors. And we will be grateful for your support in making it happen.

Please read the blog post for more details:

"Walter and Andrei both" -> both Walter and Andrei
"Pull requests were" -> Pull Requests (PRs) were
"the list. The one linked above, for example." -> the list, for example, the one linked above.

Nice work setting this up, looking forward to many more targeted campaigns like this.

Nicholas has already reduced my frustration with getting a PR merged--thanks! It was a good incentive to donate.

This is really great news. Will all dlang repositories monitored? Or more specific, does this also includes the dub repository? The pull request list is really hot here.

Kind regards

My current focus is DMD > druntime > phobos > dlang.org
Unfortunately I don't have a lot of experience with the dub codebase (or access right for that matter) though I agree it could really benefit.

Looks like I've got some source-diving to do.

I have contributed my share. Hope the campaign (champagne?) will be successful, even beyond the initial 3 month.

I am still not convinced, why jet an other contribution system is needed.

But you should place the links at: https://dlang.org/foundation/donate.html
to lead people to this campaign not reading this post.

An important feature flipcause really is missing is paypal, as a payment method. To be able to donate without credit card. - Yes there are people not using credit cards if they can avoid it, especially in Europe.

Sorry for annoy you, but this links have to be integrated into the donate page
https://dlang.org/foundation/donate.html

or even better the hint for this campaign should be on the home page, too.

I gave my 25 bucks and want this topic to stay on top! So please put it on top!
The campaign (https://www.flipcause.com/secure/cause_pdetails/NDUwNTY=is) is now at 614$ (goal 3000$), so that keeping this performance since the first donation (11/10) would give the missing 2386$ in app 51 days:

=> We need another 74 supporters with an average of 32$.

Hi, will I get a donation certificate? I haven't found anything about it.

Yes, I know. I want to do more than just add the link, however. I want to integrate the campaign menu, and that means I have to set aside some time to determine how best to add the integration code into the DDOC for the site. It's one of many items on my TODO list and I'll get to it soon.

I'll do another push in the first week of December, on Twitter and the blog. And as we get closer to the deadline, I'll send out more reminders.
