Description=

A study by the Joomla community of how other projects are funded:

"We were particularly interested in how senior developers for the projects we examined are funded. By senior developers we mean the people doing architectural work, doing determinative code review, making final decisions on features, and guiding the work of other contributors. We also looked at parallel questions on the community and operations side of the project, such as support of community managers and administrative staff, but that was not the main focus."
