It’s been three years since the release of DotNetNuke, and today Shaun announced the DotNetNuke Benefactor Program. Basically, you can make a donation to support the project, and get some extra benefits in return. DNN will remain open source and free, and becoming a benefactor is optional.
The DotNetNuke Benefactor Program was created with the intent to preserve the delicate balance between the needs of the open source community, the serious business ecosystem it has fostered, and the on-going management of the project. The Benefactor Program provides the ability for community members to gain access to a premium set of layered benefit packages; with each level designed to satisfy the needs of a specific stakeholder group.
