This is a list of project proposals that are currently open for crowd funding. If you have other ideas that are not listed here yet, please speak up on the mailing list. To get more information about the projects below, either ask on the mailing list or contact Stefan Behnel.
Each proposal below is preceded by a project name that you can use as a project reference when sending money via PayPal. See the home page on how to make payments in general. By assigning a valid project name to your payment, instead of making a normal donation, you are dedicating it explicitly for that proposal. Note that invalid project names will be ignored and the payment will be considered a normal donation to the lxml project in that case. You can also name more than one project, separated by commas, in order to reassign your payment if your favourite project turns out to have already been completed.
Once a substantial part of the money that is required for a project implementation has been collected, work on this project will be started as soon as possible. The status of a running project will be communicated through the lxml project home page and the lxml mailing list.
In case the sum of the project specific payments, summed up in the order of their reception, overshoots the final price of the implementation of that proposal, the overpayments will normally be kept as a donation for the general development on lxml. If, instead, you really want to restrict your payment to the named project and not open it for general development of the lxml library, you can request a refund in the case of overpayments by adding the word "refund" to your payment message. Note that we will not refund any fees or charges that PayPal takes for either your original payment or our refunding payment.
Here are some project proposals that cannot currently be funded directly due to a lack of design consideration, so no realistic estimate about the amount of work they require can be made. If you are interested in any of these projects, please contact either the lxml mailing list of Stefan Behnel.
Note: If you dedicate payments to the lxml project to any of the following projects in their current state, the dedication will be ignored and the payment will be considered a general donation to the lxml project.
