10 modi per ringraziare gli sviluppatori del software free e OS

Mi hanno segnalato questo post [1], semplice e diretto scritto da Moshe
Zadka.
Ogni tanto conviene stamparlo e farlo leggere in giro.

Every day, I use high-quality software that is developed and maintained by
people who do not ask for payment, who respect my freedoms, and who are
generous with their time and energy.

In this season of giving thanks, I encourage those of you who also use and
appreciate the work of open source and free software maintainers to express
your gratitude. Here are ten ways to do that:

EASY TO DO
1) Send an e-mail thanking the developers. Be specific—tell them what you
are using their software for and how it has benefited you.
2) Use your favorite social media platform to spread the word.
3) Write a blog post about your favorite software.

GIVE MONEY
4) If your favorite open source projects accept donations, send money.
5) If you are employed by a company that uses open source software, see if
you can convince management to sponsor some of the projects.
6) Offer to match donations up to a set amount. It is amazing what social
motivation can do!

GIVE TIME
7) Help review patches.
8) Help triage bugs.
9) Answer questions on IRC, mailing lists, or Stack Overflow.

10. Bonus: If you are like me, you have at some point said harsh words to
other people in the open source community. Commit to do better: Communicate
with kindness and openness. The best way to give thanks is to make the open
source community a place where people feel comfortable communicating.

Il punto 5 credo sia il più difficile da vedere come mentalità
attualmente, ma la speranza è l'ultima a morire...... ad ogni modo
grazie per la condivisione, penso valga per tutte le liste che trattano
temi opensoure.
