DebConf Organizers blog
The DebConf13 matching fund announced previously is now complete. The matching sponsor, Brandorr Group will match the collected amount of 2513 USD, resulting in 5026 USD of sponsoring money for DebConf13, for the benefit of all attendees.
Despite raising only slightly more than half of the expected money, this first experience of raising funds through this matching fund mechanism can be considered successful.
DebConf is very important to the health of Debian, and Debian is very important to our team, so we’re doing what we can to help. In this case we really wanted to see if we could provide an incentive for individual users of Debian to donate to the project. It seems like it worked well, and we’d love to do something like this again in the future.Brian Gupta, Brandorr Group
