The development of git-annex was made possible by the generous donations of many people. I want to say "Thank You!" to each of you individually, but until I meet all 1500+ of you, this page will have to do. You have my most sincere thanks. --Joey

Other Backers

Most of the success of the Kickstarter is thanks to these folks. Some of them spent significant amounts of money in the guise of getting some swag. For others, being listed here, and being crucial to making the git-annex assistant happen was reward enough. Large or small, these contributions were, literally, my bread and butter this year.

Also thanks to

  • The Kickstarter team, who have unleashed much good on the world.
  • The Haskell developers, who toiled for 20 years in obscurity before most of us noticed them, and on whose giant shoulders I now stand, in awe of the view.
  • The Git developers, for obvious reasons.
  • All of git-annex's early adopters, who turned it from a personal toy project into something much more, and showed me the interest was there.
  • Rsync.net, for providing me a free account so I can make sure git-annex works well with it.
  • LeastAuthority.com, for providing me a free Tahoe-LAFS grid account, so I can test git-annex with that.
  • Yury V. Zaytsev for running the Windows autobuilder.
  • Kevin McKenzie for providing a OSX account for testing.
  • Anna and Mark, for the loan of the video camera; as well as the rest of my family, for your support. Even when I couldn't explain what I was working on.
  • And Mom, for stamping and stuffing so many thank you envelopes, and all the rhubarb pies.
