Great initiative to support opensource projects. Building a community and feedback loop is always challenging for new open source projects and authors. Also the funding aspect to scale projects. I was reading this stack overflow blog the other day, a widely used opensource project like openssl recieved only 2000$ in donations per year before a major security vulnerability Heartbleed was reported. It took that vulnerability for the enterprise users of the project to seriously think about supporting openssl.
