Hi friends,

there’s been a blog post on FOSS funding recently, which received quite a bit of attention on HackerNews/Twitter and alike:

The author Nadia Eghbal (@nayafia) now started a doc on projects that require support.

I added pytest to the list and who knows, maybe it will help us fund the dev sprint.

@Brianna: I put in the orgs twitter handle to get in touch. Please feel free to update this to what you feel suits best.
