Thrown in some crumbs - hope to send more once I've had time to load it and paid for the summer.

Keep going!

Just so people are aware, to create the Raspbian autobuild cluster, so far my out-of-pocket expenses are about $2000 in equipment, another $700 for equipment on order and an on-going monthly expense of about $100 for unlimited bandwidth hosting of the Raspbian public repository. Oh, and $40 for a Raspberry Pi :) .
A huge thank you to Mike Thompson and Peter Green (aka Plugwash) for all their hard work on this exciting port.

That's a fair bit of expenditure you've had to lay out - I'm happy to contribute $100 to help. Hope it arrived OK.

Many thanks again :)

Thank you for all of your time & effort. £25 donated to help with your costs, as although everything you've done is priceless, we all know it still costs lots of money! :D

Thank you everyone. With the distractions of the last couple of days with the Foundation Raspbian image going live and chasing down issues I've fallen behind in sending out thank you notes to the people who have donated. Please be assured that your donations are very much appreciated and I'll be sending out a personal thank you note soon so you know your donation was received.
