@Framasoft Ok, understood. To our knowledge Framasoft was very successful with getting donations to fund their services. Other entities either have to be as successful as you or they have to offer paid services. Free as in freedom not as in free beer. Funding such a decentralized service infrastructure is a real challenge at least in Germany.
@hostsharing Yes, funding services (meaning funding both their development and their hosting) is... fundamental. And not everyone is in a position to reproduce our model.
That is why we think we need more experimenting and facing those problems as a collective (being @ChatonsOrg or #librehosters, or...). Framasoft is taking a step backwards so those collective can step forwards. That is what we aim for, at least ;).
