Support pcb-rnd Development

Current Project: Pcb-rnd

Background: pcb-rnd is a gpl licensed circuit board layout program forked from the pcb project. This site is for initial fundraising to free up addtional pcb-rnd dev time. Currently, pcb-rnd development time is carved from spare hours in the early morning, evening, weekends, and holidays. That can change with a bit of general development support. If this works, great (see goals, below), but if funding doesn't come through for extra hours for pcb-rnd development, then work on pcb-rnd will still continue. Reports are coming in that developing pcb-rnd is still fun :-)

All funds donated here will go towards additional pcb-rnd development time.

Motivation: As cschem and genxproj take up a larger share of free time for development, it will be important to free up 'working hours' for sustained development of pcb-rnd.

Motivation part two: You just received shiny new pcbs back from the fab, they were developed with pcb-rnd and they look great. Now, you can now send a $5 or other amount as a thank you to the lead developer of pcb-rnd.

Alternative option: funding feature development
Another option is to pay for development of pcb-rnd features you or your company requires. Inquire with igor2 about feature development with pcb-rnd

Goals: At this time, supporting extra devoted time for pcb-rnd development is very affordable. some metrics for support:
4 supporters pledging $12/month ($48/month total) activates more than a regular working day of development per month Another goal is to enable part time work devoted to pcb-rnd development: requiring a target of least $100/week. If we can hit and sustain this for a month, I'll look into setting up fiscal sponsorship for a formal funding of the pcb-rnd project.
