Following Matt’s announcement that the text-links had been removed from the free Vanilla forums package, I thought it was a good time to donate as well. There’s no way I can match Matt’s $1000, but I hope my meager $100 donation helps out.
It really surprised me to see Matt donating to Vanilla, particularly since Automattic is the producer of another open-source forums product: bbPress. Seeing this kind of support for a competing project really does make me love open source all the more.
Keep up the great work!
