Initiative on sponsorship forwarding, by Anthony Fu, April 19, 2024

A discussion on “front facing” projects that can find funding and sponsorship directly, be underlying dependencies that find it a challenge of awareness.

The author Anthony Fu is experimenting with using a personal collective on Open Collective in order to pool funds and curate which dependencies they should go to.
