I have donated my first 50% of the tablet refund to Jolla as maybe many others. Regarding this blog post around 25% of all contributors have not filled in the refund request until April 12. I assume that many of them havn't done it the last days.

I don't expect that the refunds will help running the company for a longer time. It is more like a bonus or topping of the default financing.

This wiki post is meant to collect ideas or proposals how Jolla could use the refunds or at least parts of it in the spirit of the community best.

My proposals:

  • Have a party with current and former Sailors to push the motivation and say thank you and invite some community members.
  • Visit SFOS user group meetings.
  • Get students on board for an internship.
  • Run monthly polls for best harbor and openrepos apps and support the developers.

@reviewjolla: You could change your proposal to an answer. Than it's easier to vote for it.

A fund for freelance (3rd party) Sailfish OS app developers uploading apps to harbour, for example with a fixed monthly amount divided between the developers by app download count. The idea behind this is to boost app development, maybe even to get some new quality apps into the store.

@reviewjolla nice. but i don't understand why jolla doesn't propose services, support, mail, cloud, business solution for different classes. Free tools, free to bound with the own user solutions, or use with the jolla one but paid solutions and service with small payments... Bring some faster cash to the company. Partner -space things are quite interesting but need time to create, improve install (they already talked about the risks, but now i measure even deeper their remarks).

I vote a party in Helsinki for everyone with a jolla device. And if you still want to donate your second refund you get a free beer for the trouble.

Sounds about right.
