How you Can Help

Thank you for your interest in supporting Devuan!

Translations

You can mirror and translate the static web at devuan.org. If you provide a primary mirror for your language, we can offer <lang>.devuan.org where <lang> is the locale (e.g., de, en, es, fr, it, en-US, zn-CH…)

We can also host your translations on the main devuan.org server.

Monetary Donations

A continuous flow of income allows the project to be sustainable. Expenses range from IT to travel and hosting costs, and remuneration of people working on Devuan. We believe “volunteer” has a distinct meaning than “free labor” and time and talent spent on the projects should be rewarded accordingly. Devuan is made of humans, and we intend them to stay alive!

If you can afford it and you’re committed to helping Devuan, please consider a recurring donation, as minimal as it may be: it contributes to the stability of the project and its capacity to plan in advance.

Donations can be made in Bitcoin, EUR, USD, via bank transfer, Stripe, or PayPal.

Merchandise

You can show your support with Devuan-branded tee-shirts, stickers, and more. Have a look at our shop, these make a great conversation starter.

Media Sponsorship

Sponsor a Devuan Gathering

Corporate donors can sponsor specific events to support the community in exchange for exposure. We’re looking for partners promoting free software, responsible and sustainable businesses who share our vision for a free, inclusive society.

In-Kind Donations

Bandwidth

There are several ways to help Devuan with bandwith:

Racked Servers

If you can provide a server in a data center, we can probably make good use of it. If you have space in your data center, we can also buy a server and rack it there.

Build Machines

We’re looking to expand our capacity to automatically build Devuan packages on different architectures, preferrably ARM devices and rare architectures.

Hardware vendors are welcome to send sample machines for Devuan developers to work with. According to the availability of interested developers, delivery may change, therefore you should make your gift in the appropriate topic in talk.do: Donating Build Machines to the Devuan Project.

Places

If you have a place where a dozen people could work on Devuan for a few days in great conditions, you’re very welcome to invite for a documentation book sprint or a devuan gathering.

Face-to-face meetings are not only productive, they also nurture the community.
