We’re adding an extra step to avoid people to donate: when clicking the ‘donate’ link, a modal window (pop-up within the website) shows up. There might be a small security risk the way I have currently set it up. There are workarounds, but they’re less nice.
There is a feature request in our website translation tool (Weblate), which would take out the security risk: Set protected XLIFF tags to read-only in translation frontend · Issue #7797 · WeblateOrg/weblate · GitHub
Would people be OK if I ask if we can sponsor (pay for) implementing the feature request, and how much it would cost? (‘Custom development’ - which this kinda is - costs € 90/hour.)
This would fall under point 5 of the Donation Expenses Policy: Upstream & Peer contributions. Weblate is Free and Open Source software, and we use it gratis because we’re open source as well. So I would consider/treat this ‘payment for service’ as a donation.
In case of no objections within a week, I’ll contact them to ask, and I’ll report back here of course when I get a reply
