> For reference, the ones of NumFOCUS are at
> https://numfocus.org/sponsors/become-a-sponsor, so to get consistent,
> our new levels would renamed as:
> - Gold (previously Platinum): 50k
> - Silver (previously Gold): 25k
> - Bronze (previously Silver): 10k
> This will help especially for actors that already have a relationship
> with NumFOCUS and can be confused by the current non-alignment.
> NumFOCUS confirmed that companies that offer a sponsorship designated to
> GDAL will receive both GDAL's benefits and NumFOCUS ones under that tier
> (if they don't already benefit from NumFOCUS sponsorship at a higher
> level because already sponsoring other NumFOCUS projects)
> I'm +1 for that change. I don't anticipate sponsors to mind about that
> change. The different tiers and relative positioning with other actors
> is probably what matters to them, more than the absolute title of the
> tier. Anyway, we'll communicate that change to the current sponsors, and
> adapt our own documentation.
