Pas2JS was supported by the foundation more than any other project, if
I understood right.
Now looking at its home page:
I don't see Pas2JS even listed in the projects page. Why?
The main page says about donations:
"If you would like to donate money for a specific project, see our
donations page page. A list of past donors can be seen in our Hall of
However there is no way to donate for a specific project. The money
goes into a black hole. Its usage for various projects is not reported
even afterwards.
I understand it is a turn-off for people like Edivando who want to
support a particular sub-project.

When the foundation was discussed, I remember there was a request to
publish data about the money flow and projects supported.
I don't find data anywhere else either. Google+ community was closed.
Are there other places to look at?
I think "Google+ community" should be removed from the About page.

Anyway, I understand Edivando's motive to support a particular project
using an open and controlled crowdfunding process instead of puoring
the money into a black hole from where no information leaks out.
