Donations? Why?

Since 2004, the YAM Development Team accepts donations to support their development on YAM. This was mainly established to fight against the shrinking motivation and amount of developers actively working on the future of YAM. By supporting our development team with financial donations we hope to attract other developers and give our developers an additional motivation to work on the future of YAM. To divide the amount of donated money fairly through all developers, we will use the following procedure:

  • On a new official (stable) release, the number of SVN checkins from all developers who were active during that release will be counted.
  • The received money will be substracted by the required fees by PayPal (~4%) and sourceforge.net (5%) in addition to a ~5% supporting amount which will be forwarded to sourceforge.net for providing their development platform.
  • The rest of money of the received donations will be splitted by each percent each developer was active during this release.
  • The developer's money will then afterwards forwarded to each developer's PayPal account.

How can I donate?

You want to support the development of YAM by donating some cents to our development team? Then please make sure you have a PayPal account. As soon as you are able to send money via PayPal please use one of the following possibilites to issue a donation to our project:

  1. If you prefer to use sourceforge.net for sending the donations please make sure you have a sourceforge.net account. Then use the following link to submit the money:
  2. If you do not want to donate through the sourceforge.net site, but prefer to donate directly via PayPal please use the following link instead:

Who did donate already and how much where already donated?

YAM <= 2.4 development

  • no donations available.

Still not convinced?

You are still not convinced that donations to our project will be any good? Then please have a look at how YAM has evolved since its opensource release. We did a tremendous progress in bringing YAM up to a level where it is compareable to other modern clients like Thunderbird and KMail.

So if you share the vision of having a modern, uptodate E-Mail client for your Amiga, then please help us in helping you!
