The money goes towards to things like:
- Providing more bandwidth for users and committers
- Purchasing additional servers to host Eclipse projects
- Sending students to EclipseCon
- Sponsoring Eclipse community events
On top of that, recent disbursements from the Friends of Eclipse fund has gone to:
- Texas A&M University Eclipse Symposium
- RAM purchase for IP Team’s scan server
- One new Mac Mini to run tests on eclipse.org
- Hardware to replace dead (and old) NFS file servers
So hopefully you know that your donation is being used for good in my opinion. If you want to take advantage of some of the funds and are part of the Eclipse community, check out the wiki for more instructions on how to apply. It would be great to see some more usage of the funds for community related activities like meetups.
