2020[..6] Financial Report
This is a repost from https://rust-analyzer.github.io/blog/2020/08/20/financial-report.html.
This is a short financial report for Open Collective for the first half of 2020, from 01-01-2020 until 30-06-2020.
As we haven't noted the exact date of the previous report, the numbers in this one will be approximate :( It probably is good that @matklad didn't choose accounting as a career. The next report should be exact though.
We've got about 14000 EUR on open collective after fees. Of which we distributed 12000 EUR by splitting it into two buckets:
- 50% for Ferrous Systems
- 50% for contributors, not affiliated with Ferrous
We were able to pay more than our usual 20% to contributors because we managed to do some direct contracting work for rust-analyzer. Ferrous share went to paying for part of @matklad's time and for administrative tasks. 3000 EUR were paid to @flodiebold for chalk integration and various other type system improvements. 3000 EUR were paid to @edwin0cheng for implementing most of declarative and procedural macro support.
Our biggest Open Collective sponsors in the first half of 2020 are:
- Embark Studios (6000EUR)
- Discord (1500EUR)
- Parity (1500EUR)
- Prisma (1200EUR)
- Johan Andersson of Embark (1100EUR)

If you use rust-analyzer professionally, consider asking your company to sponsor the development of this project. We are also planning to announce a couple of new ways to support rust-analyzer development soon, stay tuned!
As a reminder, we publish weekly changelogs to report the progress on rust-analyzer and explain where the money goes.
