 NixOS and Nixpkgs receives hundreds of pull requests every week, and I'm building tools to make it easier to merge them. Started as a hacky side project, it has quickly evolved in to a robust tool. Running OfBorg costs me real money, though, and I need help.

I need the most help right now with Sponsor part of the Core Infrastructure level.

The rewards listed will not actually be given to you, but used to fund the infrastructure.  I won't keep any of it personally. Note also that if you contribute at a level which is already well funded, it may not go to exactly that. For example, if I have ten people at the Evaluator level, I may use some of that to support some other infrastructure.

Also, if your business would like to support OfBorg, you can buy a license or recurring support contract -- I'll send you an invoice.

"Get it out of my closet!"

Cover part of the core infrastructure (but no build machines) needed for operating. At about three patrons at this level, it will be off of my personal hardware. More patrons lets me add redundancy.

The low low price of $66/mo gets you personal access to all the monitoring tools (seriously) and lets you be on call as often as you want (not really... but if you really want...)

"Hey, isn't this like Hydra?"
Produce a trustworthy binary cache of everything built by OfBorg. At this level, all the hardware is dedicated to OfBorg, and is maintained by trusted members of the community.
