The following was sent to GitHub projects this week.
Daniel Compton of GitHub:
New Relic wants to support [redacted] through GitHub Sponsors!
GitHub Sponsors has a new service in private beta for invoiced customers. It lets companies who can’t pay with a credit card use Sponsors to support open source maintainers like yourself.
New Relic is one of our launch partners with this service and has selected [redacted] as someone they’d like to support for $100/month for three months.
If you’d like to receive their support, you can sign up for GitHub Sponsors at https://github.com/sponsors/accounts. You can connect it with your existing Open Collective account.
Once you sign up, I’ll send you a short agreement to cover New Relic’s payments. The invoiced method is slightly different, New Relic purchases a project health dashboard from GitHub, and GitHub purchases publicly available open source data from you.
Let me know if you have any questions and I can answer them. You can also write in to GitHub Support if you’re concerned about the source of this message and I can answer them from there.
