I'm not sure I understand this correctly. It sounds like,
"We wanted to
pay you but we don't have the money now. We'll talk to the project and
see if they will pay you instead." Has the work on the feature been
completed? What sort of contract was created between Linux Fund and the
developer? How are we involved, if at all, in this contract? What
percentage of the total is $630?
It's more like, we'll put in some of the money, but we want donations to
cover some of it too. They also received a donor who is matching other
donations. The foundation would be effectively donating the final
amount that hasn't been supplied by others.
I don't believe that any of the work has been done. The only work
committed at this point is just in the development of the proposal.
Though, I'm not sure on that.
Are there other alternatives? Could we offer to promote a special
campaign to gather funds via donations to support the work?
It was announced. Though, not heavily promoted. I'm not sure if more
promotion would make up the difference.
