Shields revenue comes from donations. It doesn't have a legal entity, though. If it did, it probably would be a nonprofit, and I probably would need to read a lot more about French law on the subject.

However, given the current situation, if I need to set up a nonprofit, it will be easier for me to use a system that allows personal donations, at the expense of the possibility of sharing the workload and the donations.

@espadrine I'm fine with no nonprofit or legal entity for now, as long as you're clear that if/when you're able to start sharing revenue, you'll need to figure out what the implications of that are for you (i.e., are there sole proprietorships in France? Or must you incorporate in order to pay employees/contractors? etc. ...). I just don't want you to be surprised.

Who are your users?

Those who download content from img.shields.io, use the shields library or its API.

How do you get them to pay you?

They donate if they want to keep the service running.

I've updated the Revenue Model text to read:

And I've approved the team. :)

You okay with that change?

@whit537 Is there a way to change the profile statement at https://gratipay.com/~Shields/? It is already a bit outdated, and will soon be even more outdated once we switch away from Heroku.
