Ever wanted a place where you could simply offer to pay to get something you need in Drupal done?
Please donate to make that place. (Yes, it's using a different crowdfunding platform, one that really lacks features for coordination, but is passing on all money raised -- if we reach the minimum -- without even deducting credit card fees.)

We have created two bounties for our OpenPackage Video module to start with:
If these go well, there will be many more to follow. Please consider pledging (even a small amount).Read more
