Here are the results of the latest round of Fosstodon donations.

We recently started another round of donations for this year where we had enough spare funds to donate $300 to two open source projects.

First came the nominations round where a tonne a really great open source projects were nominated. We love seeing this level of involvement from the Fosstodon community - keep it up, folks!

Once we had the shortlist nailed down, we de-duped it and gave it to our Patrons to cast the final vote in order to decide which 2 projects receive the donations.

The results

The spread of the results was surprising this time around - usually we have one or two clear winners. This time, although we had 2 winners, it was very close:
