Very good job -- short and simple.  I have only a minor
suggestion.

Change:
xx% of contribution earmarked for efforts of your choosing
to:
xx% of contribution earmarked for the JSF efforts of your
choosing

All,

I've been working with Peter Saint-Andre on a new page which
we propose
to add to the jabber.org site which speaks specifically to
corporate
sponsorship.

With the economy as tight as it has been in the past several
months,
asking corporations for sponsorships has been challenging
task, and not
particularly fruitful.

As such, and being that most of the voting benefits are
accrued to the
membership, I propose we consider the concept that corporate
sponsors
can 'direct' funds to particular projects or Foundation
efforts of their
choosing.

While there are issues surrounding this concept which need
to be
reviewed by legal, and there remains the possibility that
actually
administering such a plan would be more overhead (or
liability) than the
Foundation can or should absorb, I like the concept and
believe that it
might provide the 'value proposition' required.

The page is located at:
http://www.jabber.org/sponsorship.html

I'd be interested in hearing your feedback on the specific
percentages
or even the overall concept (or alternative concepts which
answer the
'what do I get for my money')

Andre Durand
