Probably depends on how ambitious we want to be. We are in a very good place right now, and we can just carry on as we are, but there is a limit to how far we can go, I think, when we all have day jobs.

If I was playing with my MBA (no sniggering, I do genuinely have one) I would say we are at the "growth wall", which is a point at which SMEs decide to how expand (new markets, more staff etc. etc)

It is inevitably the big risk they face (if you discount starting in the first place) and is when bad things happen.

It would seem logical that we all half agree some funding is required to go anywhere

So, where?

Kickstarter? Indiegogo? Shuttleworth? Hewlett?

We considered setting up a foundation, but it fell over when we discovered it would cost £5k or £10k a year and would take quite a bit of work to do. It could be resurrected as a discussion though.

FYI. I did consider setting up a paid service for another open source project, but decided against it as the project had no formal entity through which I could feed back payments.

If Xerte did have some sort of formal body it would give people confidence to start investing in it...
