Hi Sture: There is no "MapServer Project" entity go donate too. However, there 
are a couple of options:

  - become a project sponsor through OSGEO
  - contract with one of the various MapServer developers directly for specific work

The OSGEO path is untested at this point but it probably the way to go if you are
interested in general support. The other is tried and true and I can help put you in 
touch with resources.

That said, I just learned that RFC 17 looks to be funded for 5.0 through another
source so your timing is perfect or poor depending on your perspective. ;-)

Hi again

We might be interrested in making a donation/funding to the Mapserver development team. 

How do one go about to do something like this?

Best regards

Later MS4W version include an increased value for MAXSYMBOLS (128).

There is a MapServer RFC for this actually 
(  I am not 
certain that this is on the table for the 5.0 release, even though it is 
listed at the bottom of the release plan 

If you can come up with funding for that RFC I bet that would help push 
up its priority.
