How to support the CodehausWe're grateful for the supporters who've already contributed, but there's always room for more.
Write code!The easiest way to support the Codehaus is to join a project and contribute of your time.
What do we do with our funds?
Running Codehaus is not cheap; we push over a terabyte of data a month; and while Contegix helps us out, it leaves little in the way of funding for junkets (sponsoring user groups, trinkets, and beer).
Extra dollars are put towards funding our support staff (i.e. improving our infrastructure); and expanding our network.
There is a great many things we could do with additional infrastructure / the time to implement more functionality.
If you want something to happen faster; contact Codehaus Support and make us an offer we can’t refuse.
Financial structureOpenXource (Australia) takes care of all finances for the Codehaus; they receive all revenue from advertising and other activities, and pay for all hosting and support costs.
Non Profit StatusThe steps required to make Codehaus a non-profit were never completed; so while "The Codehaus Foundation, Inc." looks like a certified non profit organization, the actual legal situation is that we are not.
