Stop hoping that volunteers will have free time to maintain the Ruby developer tools that your work depends on.
- Community funding allows Ruby Together to pay developers to work on improving Bundler, RubyGems, and other shared tools.
- The Ruby Together board of directors, elected by members, selects the most impactful projects to fund.
- Ruby Together publishes monthly updates showing progress and results.
The more contributors can live off their open-source work, the more they'll be able to devote to that work and the better their software will be for everyone. This is why we've been contributing funds to the open-source infrastructure we rely on. — Andreas Fuchs, Stripe
