Recently I was celebrating three years of owning a Fairphone. As I realized later, this also means that I have been relying on F-Droid for the last three years. In all that time I have ignored the small hint
F-Droid is powered by your donations.
Now it’s time to change that. However, before I send money, I have two questions/remarks.
Personally, I prefer bank transfer over Paypal, but in this case I am not sure about transaction fees. Within the eurozone bank transfer is free, but what about bank transfer from a, say, German bank account to the British bank account of F-Droid? Are there any additional fees or an unfair currency conversation rate?
I think it would be interesting to have some general information about the state of donations. Something like a statement of the form: “Last year we received XY in donations but our expenses were YZ.” The GnuPG project has such a very nice summary, for example.
