The "Clone Don Porter" Project aims to fund full-time resources to perform work under the guidance of a Tcl Core Team member.
Under this project programmers are assigned to work full-time on improving Tcl. The goal of this project is to accomplish tasks that facilitate dgp's continued efforts as a member of the Tcl Core Team. The project relies on financial support from Tcl users, and as long as that support continues. The work queue will be curated directly or indirectly by dgp. Coordination and communication will occur primarily in the Tcl Chatroom.
Funding will be solicited from individuals and other entities with an interest in Tcl.
The first round of work for project was completed on 2018-06-24, with funding efforts still in progress.
APN I'm all for this project but sadly, can only offer moral, not financial, support! Good luck with getting the backing.
If you see value in this project, please add your voice here to encourage others to support the project.
bll 2018-06-25 Who the hell is "we", and who do these accounts belong to? kreidla put this information here and who is that? Scam? Does someone really expect that money would be transferred to an unknown account?
kreidla 2018-06-26: Komtere OÜ , an Estonian firm founded in 2016 by Nathan Coulter and Karl Reidla (me), is running this project. The bank details are also available on the Komtere website , but since the certificate for the site is self-signed, those doubting the authenticity of this information may want to contact us directly or give the information on this page sufficient time to be redacted by others if it is false.

SYStems 2018-05-07: Can we add a Tcl/Tk modern IDE to that list :)
ak I believe that one is a step to far and big.
SYStems let's do it then :)
APN One performance enhancement I would like, if you are taking RFE's, is faster calls to commands implemented in C extensions. They are currently significantly slower than bytecoded commands.
DEC Could this be funded via Patreon?
HaO 2021-07-28: For me, the mentioned web-site "https://www.komtere.ee/main/projektid " does not resolve. I appreciate the work of Nathan and met him at the ETCL and TCL conferences. My company would be ready to sponsor general TCL work. Is it possible to get a formal invoice ? THank you, Harald
