[Lazarus] NewPascal "foundation" and black PR

    Hi Maciej,

Thank you for the clarification. It is great that you are doing that work, and there is nothing wrong with you getting donations. What I felt was not right, was to post the site as a Lazarus foundation, most likely after you saw my posts.
The Lazarus Foundation has nothing to do with Mitov Software, or any of my work. It also is setup in such a way, that I can’t get any money from it in any way.
All the money are raised to pay the Lazarus/FPC developer, and that does not include me in any way.
I am donating my time and effort to rise the funding for FPC/Lazarus, and who knows if we the donors decide some other projects maybe even yours.
And BTW: I also do open source projects whenever I can, and I am also not rich programmer either, but unlike in your case the money I raise will not go to me in any way, and unlike you, I actually donate my work time (the libraries I sell are my only income), to this cause. I have not been able to do any other work for the last couple of days, because of my involvement in this, and it will be only the beginning, so while I am doing this, my own survival will be in big limbo. This is a great risk for me, but I am taking it, as this is needed, and nobody else has done it for so many years :-(

With best regards,
Boian Mitov

I have to correct something:

2016-06-27 21:19 GMT+02:00 Boian Mitov <mitov at mitov.com>:

  but then this guy obviously saw my post, and decided to announce his own "Foundation", so I had to respond with our announcement:

this guy is Maciej Izak, and Boian have wrong timing. What post? It is crazy! It was planned for a long time (January 2014):


NewPascal idea exist to provide simple start for mORMot users (in near future probably for Castle Game Engine too) and for early access for my compiler work on ARC objects and SmartPointers:


Donate button is provide to help me with keeping infrastructure (domain, VPS, small server), I am not rich programmer.

Maybe no evryone has knowledge but to opposing to "Mitov Software" all of my work is open source! All is created in my free time after work. I may work too secretly but I am working on new MDI for Lazarus, Native LCL controls for Android, Debugger for Android, mORMot extensions and mentioned compiler stuff.

Seems like PM is hard for business owner.

Best regards,
Maciej Izak
