Well, returning to the topic in the subject line: on May 24th, my rally
for funding my work on LilyPond had netted €165 for the month when I
posted my guess that the bare minimum of €800 I needed for just
subsisting would not be met this month.  I have not yet corrected the
balance with regard to payments intended for more than one month, but it
turns out that the balance now is more like €1150.

Even the subset of the subset of the subset that is reading this mailing
list, vocal and opinionated or not, is making a difference for me, and
certainly also for LilyPond.  And a large part of this difference _is_
by being vocal and opinionated on this list.
