A lot of Fairphone users care about Free Software, as discussions in this forum show. A lot of us know already that without the hard work of free software developers, Android and most of our free apps would be impossible.
Google heavenly invests in Android and somehow in Linux and Free Software development in general, however they still are somehow selective in projects they support and solutions they implement. While Android remains open source, it becomes ever more clear that without the help of developers, using an “Google Apps free” Fairphone - as some of us do, would be much less fun and feasible.
I therefore want to start an initiative to provide to show more support and appreciation to these developers. Every last Thursday of the month for as long as i use a Fairphone, i will select an open source project which improves my Fairphone experience and donate at least 5€ to it’s developers. And I encourage you fellow fairphoners to do the same. ( Choose an amount to your liking and according to your financial situation.)
For inspiration and ideas, i will post the project i choose in this post!
Let’s start bringing some fairness to app developers.
