Project money

Hi friends!

The project finanses are looking really swell. We have several main sponsors
covering all the main costs in the project. We have a set of silver sponsors
that donate money to us on a monthly basis which makes "the curl fund" grow
over time. See all sponsors here:

We spend money from this fund on bug bounties and the curl security team has
recently agreed to increase our reward levels going forward. Still, we have
only paid 5 rewards so far in the bug bounty program since April so I don't
think there's a very big risk for the flood gates to open because of this.

Therefore, we now have some money in the project for us to use on project
related things or activities. If we want to. And I'm curious if people have
ideas or suggestions on this.

See the project fund details here:

One thing I want to look into is how to sponsor core contributors' attendance
at curl up. I just need to come up with a way that I feel is fair and
reasonable and propose it...
