Because all the developpers of Links have successfully finished their college study, the development of Links loses it's incentive as a school work and moves into the area of free time, which is generally scarce. To reinsure a continuity in development with stable supply of development time, we decided to incite the users into sending financial contributions.

The contributors together with contributed amount will be published here, in order of decreasing amount. Costs of development of every compacted part of code will be assessed. As soon as enough contributions accumulate the code will be released (under GPL, of course).

We believe that such elimination of all mediating elements between user and developper (compared to the commercial model of proprietary software development) will allow reaching maximum possible development efficiency from the user's point of view.
