There is an existing "paypal donate" button on the website; any idea how
much that brings in, and where it goes? (probably a pittance..)

I know there have been some technical/access reasons holding that up.

Do we have stats to show the breakdown of bandwidth usage? Eg static
web content, forums, official rockbox release downloads, nightly build
downloads, source control (ie git repos), and more nebulous
"infrastructure" (eg build system C&C, translation tools, and so forth)

I'm personally not terribly fond of forums; They seem to be nearly
always the worst option. If we're going to stick with forums, perhaps
the right approach is to mark all of the existing topics/etc as
read-only, move them to new top-level "archive" category, and create a
new, simplified hierarchy for future use..
