Have a sponsor per release
We could propose sponsors to be mentioned in our release notes as the
sponsor for each of our releases. The sponsor would pay for the cost of
at least release management, QA, and technical writing for this release.

We talked about this during the contributors meeting. We discussed the concerns about this. Some of us have the feeling this might hurt the public image of the project, making it look cheap or more dependent from sponsors than previously conceived. On the other hand, we acknowledge that the release funding would actually be unrestricted funding, in contrast to other funding which is sometimes only for a specific purpose. It was noted that we need more funding in general and that we would like to have more unrestricted funding. We agreed that we would be ok with this if we make it clear what exactly the sponsor paid for (and what they didn't).

I'd like to lead the discussion about this. Sorry for bringing it up again, but it seems it raises a lot of questions which we shall elaborate on before going any further. This should not be discussed during a monthly meeting though, either during the summit or over email, i think.
