This project started when I wrote up the specification and got general approval from pgsql-hackers. Then, at PGCon, it made the list of development priorities for PostgreSQL 9.1 (when I was then calling it “PGAN”). It was when MyYearbook.com’s Gavin Roy pledged a founding contribution of $5,000 (also at PGCon) that I was able to put in the time to create the fundraising site and start soliciting donations. I’m really grateful to Gavin for stepping up like that, putting his money on the line on the assumption that I would be as good as my word and get the work done.
Since then, we’ve done quite well, and are getting closer to our goal every day. PostgreSQL Experts soon committed to cover $5,000 in expenses, Dalibo pledged €5,000 last month, and just yesterday Etsy promised $1,000. We’ve also received contributions from:
So far, we’ve raised $18,359. Yay! I’m really happy with how well this is going. But we still need to raise another $6,641 to meet our goal. I’m hoping to get that done in the next couple of weeks. Can you help out?
