Hello! I’ve a couple org related questions that I wasn’t able to find answers to, so I was curious if maybe anyone had insight on them.
The website mentions that 100% of the GitHub Sponsors goes to developers, but the GitHub Sponsors page has no info about this, nor the open collective page. It seems that the only expense has been work last year by @vigoux. Since there is a pretty large sum of money shown in the budget, are there plans to use this? Are there efforts of dispersing this to those on the core team or anything? I personally sponsor and alway recommend others to as well, but I’m a bit curious about how this money will actually be used as it seems to not really be being utilized.
In a few different places I’ve seen reference to “team members” and instructions to just ping them on Matrix, but it’s not really clear who that is. The website mentions
Neovim team and it leads to this page, but I’m going to guess not everyone on this list wants to be directly pinged with questions. So is there a core group of people that are contact points for things?
In the past I spoke with a maintainer about his and was informed that there wasn’t such a thing, but with as large of an organization as Neovim is, I’m curious if there is any sort of code of conduct you follow for maintainers or contributors? I’ve had some incredible interactions while contributing to Neovim and the ecosystem, but also some pretty negative ones, and if someone does have concerns, where do they go to with them? This sort of relates to the above point about the core team, who handles this sort of stuff?
I ask all of this in good faith, not out of any sort of animosity or anything. It’s just answers to some of these questions might help encourage more people to donate or contribute, which in the end makes for a richer more robust ecosystem that everyone wants.
