Re: [tdf-discuss] Donations system: pay for a feature




Any payments and/or donations must be accounted for and if the person
paying has any intent it to go to xyz, then by regulations we may need to
account for that payment/donation and where it went to.

That is the real problem with targeted donations and payments.  There will
be a mess in paperwork to deal with it.  Opt in, opt out, What it was used
for.  Keeping track of all of who pays what, for what, can cost more than
thepayment in paperwork and legal fees.


This has been discussed quite a bit on user list and brought up during ESC
at some point and I thought the consensus was "we'll just let them do what
they want" and not endorse, support, etc... any of that. I thought that
kept us out of legal muddy waters. It'd be similar to me just going to a
friend who is a programmer and saying "dude, can I pay you $100 to fix this
issue" - a contract completely out of TDF's hands.


Best,
Joel
