Maybe that is a blessing in disguise. I think the donations have been
dribbling in because people do not see how the awards can be helpful.
When the award is too small, it is not a meaningful recognition
(compared with the actual appreciation from users). When it is large
enough, there will be the Debian dilemma.

Managing small grants is never worth the trouble and their rewards
lie mainly as entries in resumes. If we can raise a substantial
amount (at least $100k), we can at least support some graduate
students. But from your report, that seems hopeless, and fund-raising
is also a very time-consuming endeavor.
