Well, it is an experiment.  And: given the usual Hurd timescale, it may
easily take some more months for someone ``to bite''.

Yes.  For now, I suggest to give it time.  Money you donate by definition
is money you don't need yourself, so there is no value lost personally
for you if it's ``sitting'' at FOSS Factory, waiting for someone to pick
it up.  Of course, I can understand your desire that someone should get
the money after having done some work.  :-)

Some other guys -- which I partly don't recognize by their nicknames --
already joined in by donating for either specific projects or for the
container projects.

The other points Olaf rises are very valid, of course, too.
