$40,000 is a reasonable salary for a full-time American developer, as
long as he's not located someplace with a stupid cost of living like San
Francisco or New York or LA. Of course it's not a competitive salary,
but we're a nonprofit and it would be wasteful for us to pay a
competitive salary. It's not like we're competing for talent....

Having 40k USD doesn't mean you get to spend that all on a developer. At
least in Europe there is a huge amount of overhead (factor of 2.0-2.5
IIRC for .nl).
