The German city of Bühl created "Palim! Palim!" as a #FreeSoftware #video #conferencing platform on top of #Jitsi. The feedback they received is encouraging:

"Many citizens express their personal thanks to us and we have stopped counting how many municipalities have approached us with great interest. I believe that Free Software is currently experiencing an incredible boost and that the sensitivity for data sovereignty is growing rapidly."

@3rik @fsfe Ideally they'd also start contributing back. I guess even small sums of funding would make a difference.

I agree and Stadt Bühl as well:

"[...] With a total of more than 11,000 lines of changes to the code base [of 4minitz!], we initiated the development of internationalisation and localisation. It is very important to us not only to use #FreeSoftware, but also to give something back to the community."

and for #Decidim: "... we are currently planning another bold step and are considering a crowdfunding campaign to finance a professional translation."
