Difference: DonatedMoney (r8 vs. r7)
The simplest and only official way is to use PayPal, so please click the PayPal "Donate" image in the left-side menu of the Rockbox site.
Björn Stenberg is our treasurer and he collects all the donated money.
We spend money from the donated funds on Rockbox-related activities, and in the past they have been:
Because you like Rockbox - what has been done so far and what might be done in the future. Because we have no backing from any manufacturer. Because you want to allow Rockbox to continue developing, to expand to further devices and to improve even more on the players it already runs on. Because you want a few of the Rockbox hackers to have a beer on your behalf as a proof of your appreciation. Because you get a lot of quality software made by people who spend precious spare time to write it - for no money at all.
No. Really. Rockbox is done by volunteers and we'll continue doing Rockbox even without donations.
You might really want a feature added to Rockbox, or you might even want Rockbox to run on some piece of hardware that previously it didn't run on. You might believe that the best way to make this happen is to offer some money to make someone more likely to implement this thing you really want. There are a couple of problems with this though :
For those two reasons, we strongly discourage the offering of bounties for specific stuff. Sorry. If you want something that bad, the only way we recommend to make it happen is to do it yourself.
For those two reasons, most users are probably not advised to try and offer a bounty. However, individuals or groups with the financial resources are welcome to contribute to rockbox however they like provided they follow the terms of the GPL and submit their code to normal review procedures.
