I think most of the people at canonical are working an subjects
surrounding  the work on packages (this is what Marc Shuttleworth said
IIRC in some interview).


These are tasks to make interoperation and all tasks sourounding easier.
And don´t forget if they are successful they will now have customers to
take care about.

When i first read the mail from OP i thought, when it´s all about money,
well a lot of people spending their time and also money for free.
Just have a look at Debian.
There are maybe hundreds or even thousands of people spending their time
for free.
What about Linu[xs]?
When he startet there was just a Student with an enthusiastic heart.

When the problem from OP is (and i still haven´t received an answer yet)
that they need money for running the server, what about pay-pal?
Asking Users to support this project?

As i allready stated, I do not know what it is all about, so can´t help.

bye Thilo
