For the second time this year I have donated to IPFire, and intend to do so again in six months. There is nothing interesting about this except that I do not use IPFire in my network. Rather, I like and respect the concepts and approach without currently seeing a compelling reason to switch. So, if I want to keep my options open then I need to do a little more (however modest) than sit on my hands in hope.
Welcome to the IPFire community and thanks for the kind and hope bringing lines and your contribution to the project . I think you already have opened up your options by making more than only sitting on your hands in hope since you already wrote here some supporting lines and communicate your interest in the whole idea.
Best regards and may the community see you again in some other topics.
