How about allowing people to pay with bitcoin?


"The board has been advised by our accounting contacts and lawyers that
we should not take Bitcoin directly because it will greatly increase
the likelyhood of GNOME being audited by the IRS, which is likely to
lead to the Foundation losing the not-for-profit status temporarily,
to incur accounting costs of over USD 10000 in that year (which is
considerably more than current costs) and eat into the board's and
employees' time. Based on current personal donation trends, it is
extremely unlikely that the Foundation will receive anywhere close to
USD 10000 in Bitcoin donations."


Have a great Monday,
