Hi List,

The OpenLayers Development Organisation has recently announced a call for
funding for Openlayers 6- see

OSGeo:UK are considering donating some funds to this- it's an ambitious
target but incredibly important. If anyone feels strongly that we should
not do this, please contact me off list to discuss.

Furthermore, I'd like to draw your attention to the final lines in the call
for funding:

"If you are a user of Openlayers, if this library is important to your
business, you are encouraged to join this one time call for funding
targeting Vector Tiles or to support on a long-term basis the maintenance
and further developments of the Openlayers project. This is the only way to
ensure this open source mapping library stays up-to-date and provides a
long-term top-notch solution for users aiming at avoiding software vendor
lock, such as the one provided by proprietary software editors or SaaS
providers ones."

If you are a representative of a company or organisation that makes use of
Openlayers, could I urge you to also consider donating some funds to this.
Openlayers is one of the bedrock programs of the opensource GIS ecosystem
and deserves all the support it can get.

All the best
