Members are encouraged to send donations to pay for the rental of server space, domain registration fees, and other incidentals. Nobody is being paid for their services in building, running, and maintaining the list. An account of income and expenditure will be published quarterly on the list.
It is fair to disclose that donations will be paid to a personal account, as the adminstrative overhead of setting up a Not For Profit organization that spans global boundaries only for the purpose of supporing a mailing list is not feasible. Consequently there is a level of trust involved here. The Jackrail is not a business and is not intended to make a profit, or to charge membership fees. We are only asking for funds to pay for computing resources to support the list for the benefit of all members.
All donations very gratefully accepted.
