Adding my support.

In Jonas you have someone who is doing just about everything

He has made significant personal sacrifices to provide emacs with
a package that is unique among editors and IDEs.  It could emerge
as one of those oh-so-elusive creatures: a true killer app for the
emacs platform.

Jonas has and continues to deliver a steady stream of features,
bug fixes and refinements.  Magit is clearly a work of love that is
wonderfully supported.  Jonas has exhibited admirable project
leadership skill and has published a detailed, credible map to
the future:

In addition, the Magit project is an epitome of elisp projects; it has a wonderful Info manual with source code in Org (yes, I am aware of RMS' views on Org mode), tests!, active support by Jonas and other key Magit developers in bug fixing and providing solutions to user-specific flows, etc.

Some of us care enough about developers like Jonas and the
value he is delivering to emacs that we have responded to his
plea for financial support via PayPal, Patreon or Bountysource.

Me too.
Sometimes community might be more important than copyright
assignment.  Please reconsider you request.
