Mockup donation page for Print & Color Management targeted fundraising
SFC has created a new paypal button we can use to collect donations targeted towards Print related feature work. We need a web page added to the website with messaging written for what donations to this fund will be used for, and why this feature is important to Inkscape users.
|Donation Type||hosted_button_id||Funding Purpose|
|BSM9QGNQVFSPC||Color Management, CMYK, PDF workflow, and other professional printing improvements|
See the attached CSV with all the requested button types and their corresponding hosted_button_id values. You can use the same HTML that you use for all your current buttons for these new buttons too; just change the value of the hidden hosted_button_id parameter to match what you want, and you’re good to go.
For reference, the code for one of our current buttons:
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post"><input type="hidden" value="_s-xclick" name="cmd"> <input type="hidden" value="VRQMKRX9TCDSW" name="hosted_button_id"> <input alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif" type="image" name="submit"> <img height="1" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" class="pygzexfbnpvrmtelraot kooclofgteyzqkpfkenv"></form>
This fund will cover a range of needs particular to the professional printing, including CMYK and color management, newer PDF version support, preflight checking, etc.
The master issue for this feature is (TBD); please see that for more explicit details of the kinds of work that will be needed. The primary objective of this fund will be to gather resources that can be utilized towards getting this issue to a finished state (we don't know precisely which pieces will be contracted, nor how the contracting will work, so specifics are still a bit TBD). Any funding beyond that can be used for subsequent enhancements and bug fixing.
The Inkscape Board will hold a vote to approve this before it goes live, so hold off on publishing until the board gives that go-ahead.
