Hi Steve,

One use of budget that might be worth considering would be to fund features or fixes in MapServer's many dependent open source projects, that would improve MapServer or make development easier. 

For example the MapScript API docs would be improved by being able to link to Mapfile keywords which are all indexed but have URLs that can change each time the docs are generated - see the issue at 

I contacted the maintaners of the Sphinx documentation project to see if there were options to fund feature development, but in this case I'll need to better detail the requirements, and possibly prototype it myself, so likely not relevant to this issue, but I'm sure there are others in SWIG, CMake, GDAL, Cairo, GEOS, libpng etc. 

Alternatively some MapServer t-shirts :-)
