I've been funded for two years by the DataLad project to work on git-annex. This has been a super excellent gig; they provided funding and feedback on ways git-annex could be improved, and I had a large amount of flexability to decide what to work on in git-annex. Also plenty of spare time to work on new projects like propellor, concurrent-output, and scroll. It was an awesome way to spend the last two years of my twenty years of free software.
That funding is running out. I'd like to continue this great streak of working on the free software projects that are important to me. I'd normally dip into my savings at this point and keep on going until some other source of funding turned up. But, my savings are about to be obliterated, since I'm buying the place where I've had so much success working distraction-free.
So, I've started a Patreon page to fund my ongoing work. Please check it out and contribute if you want to.
Some details about projects I want to work on this fall:
