Dear Lispers,

We are delighted and overwhelmed by the support that many of you have shown for our effort to crowdfund the maintenance and continued development of McCLIM. Never in our wildest dreams had we imagined that we would reach our highest monthly goal of 2000 USD in only a few days.

In addition to our regular maintenance and programmed improvements, at this level of funding, we will be able to post so-called "bounties", i.e., specific sums of cash for solving specific problems. Once posted, they will be available at this URL:


Like we mentioned in our initial appeal for contributions, this campaign has an important side-effect, beyond that of providing a budget for improvements, namely that of creating new excitement around McCLIM. This excitement will ultimately result in contributions in the form of code, thereby multiplying the importance of the direct monetary support.

In order to make our work on this project as transparent as possible, we will do our utmost to provide monthly reports on our progress, and we will provide details on how the cash was put to work.

We sincerely hope to make sufficient progress, sufficiently fast, that you will consider additional contributions, in the form of cash or code, in the future.
