[Foundation-l] Please contribute to the fundraising blog

I've been the only person so far to set anything up, and some of my
suggestions are just a list of bullet points - so I think merciless editing
may be appropriate in some circumstances.

I've a couple of rather rough potential posts there too, so perhaps in cases
where someone is close to a finished post it should be grammar/spelling/typo
fixed and any improvement comments left on the appropriate talk. At the
moment the only one I've done that I think is close to fit for publishing is
the "If you're a student give $5 a month to make sure WP is there to get you
through college".

Does posts being submitted in Meta suggest that they may be (or should
be) "mercilessly edited"? Because it is pretty strange to allow
merciless editing of opinion. Typos, no worries, but beyond that seems
a bit weird.


They've just been waiting in a mountain for the right moment:
