The reason for becoming a charity is because RISC OS Connect is *not for profit*
The bounty idea for contributions is *optional* - if you contribute you don't *have* to take any money.
Part of what we are trying to do is:
Offer an optional bounty for contributions to the RISC OS community for those that would find this attractive.
Generating lists of stuff that users want and lists of what contributors could provide. This is where I see the bounty scheme really kicking in - for instance someone could really help with documentation on a project if there was something in it for them.
RISC OS Connect is a vessel for people to *help* the RISC OS Community, even if it is "just" money.
