August 04, 2022: More updates to developer and project wiki forms

Wiki admins would like to formally announce more quality of life enhancements to developer and project 'pages' here on the wiki. Enhancements include:

  • Links to related bugs on bugs.g.o can now be activated on Gentoo project boxes (closes bug #686264. Individual projects can opt-in with the checkbox on each respective project page.
  • A new field for developers to post a 'fund me' link directly on their developer 'profile'. None of our developers are paid by the Gentoo Foundation; the vast majority of our devs freely volunteer their time to maintain and improve Gentoo. Please consider donating to our devs who have listed their fund me info.
