One more thing about donations:

Please consider making a recurrent contribution instead of a one-off one. This would help us greatly to continue working on F-Droid more consistently in the future.

We are currently at a point where the donations can *almost* pay for part-time development instead of being just able to pay for a coffee. Donations being recurrent instead of one-time help make that a lot more sustainable. :-).

@fdroidorg Does it mean that for you a small but recurrent contribution is better than whatever one can afford at a time but less regularly?

@pfm In principle yes, there's a catch though unfortunately. Payment processing fees are pretty steep for small transactions, so pooling them into one bigger, less frequent transaction might make sense as well.

@Liberapay works around this by transactions being made upfront in a bigger chunk but then attributed to x€ per week; and reminding you to renew when the money is "used up".

I still prefer the good old bank transfer to support FOSS projects or associations. Would that be an alternative?

@Lars_Roskoden @fdroidorg @pfm @Liberapay What's good about them?

Not meaning to troll. I always had terrible experience with international wires: they're slow, expensive and sometimes you get a call from the bank telling you that you shouldn't send money to "strange people" on the Internet 😂

Wait they tell you not to send money even in small amounts? That's weird.

@Dashtop @Lars_Roskoden @fdroidorg @pfm @Liberapay No, I was trying to transfer $2500 the time they called me up and treated me like a gullible grandpa. It delayed the wire by a week or so.
