Donations to the OVMS project

Is there any current way to make donations to the project?

At some point the project offered itself donations to people that would like to work on the project: https://www.openvehicles.com/node/98

Later on there was a website advertised for donations to the project here: https://www.openvehicles.com/node/180 . But this website does not exist any more.

The main page, its telling to go to the forum https://github.com/openvehicles/Open-Vehicle-Monitoring-System-3/blob/master/README.md?plain=1#L191

But in the forum here i cant find the donations option.


Currently the only donation place i could find is offered by the developer Dexter here: https://dexters-web.de/spenden?lang=EN


Is there a central donation place? How would donations benefit the project?

Would a OVMS registration at opencollective be beneficial like for example the F-Droid project have registered? https://opencollective.com/f-droid

Currently, the project is financed by income from hardware sales - and this seems to be working ok.

It would be better to have a formal way of offsetting server costs, but that is more complex and involves micro-payments (with administrative burden). Dexter has the donation button there to help with the EU side.
