It's been almost a year since Flatpak started fundraising on the Open Collective platform, with some modest success. While several companies have contributed to Flatpak development, most notably Red Hat, the project is under-resourced and crowdfunding may be a way to address that while maintaining the project's independence. This lightning talk will cover how we are approaching the fundraising, what technical work it has enabled, and what the future might hold.
