Maintaining an open source project inherently requires supporting a global community of users and developers.
Hello. Christer here, I'm the creator of BastilleBSD. I'm so glad you're here!

If you're reading this Patreon page there's a very good chance you're that rare breed that uses FreeBSD. You've got good taste. I'm one of those people too. Welcome to the club. It's nice to see you!

I write software for FreeBSD users as a FreeBSD user. A long time FreeBSD user.

In addition to maintaining BastilleBSD for the past three years I've also maintained the port for `sysutils/py-salt` for the past decade! It's fair to say I can't help myself building useful things. It's a bonus that other people find these things useful too.

If you are one of these people--if you find value in BastilleBSD--let me know by becoming a Patron. Your support helps me dedicate my time continuing to maintain this project and community.

Are you aware of what goes into maintaining an open source project and community? Here's a list of things I'm responsible for as maintainer:

  • Triaging and prioritizing issues
  • Reviewing pull requests
  • Creating and updating documentation
  • Testing changes
  • Maintain CI/CD pipelines
  • Hardware and hosting
  • Developing new features
  • Community support (Discord, Twitter, YouTube, Blog, etc)
  • Expanding the template collection
  • Prepare and package releases
  • ... and more

I do this work because I want to. I do this work because I needed software that I found useful. I do this work because I can. 

Thank you for your support if you can.
Goals
