Hiya folks,

🙌 I'm Geoff, an open software maintainer and as a maintainer, I have a serious load on my shoulders. I'm responsible for authoring and maintaining tools that enable developers to deliver business value faster and easier.

Software produced and maintained by me is typically dual-licensed under the License Zero Prosperity Public License, the License Zero Patron License. The Prosperity License limits commercial use to a 32 day trial period, after which license fees must be paid to obtain a Patron License.

A License Zero Waiver may also be granted waiving the non-commercial clause of the Prosperity License without requiring a Patron License. These are granted on a case-by-case basis to friends, family, repeat contributors, folks who do good things in their community and usually when the person requesting one makes a compelling case about why the non-commercial clause shouldn't apply to them.

Obtaining a Patron License

A Patron License can be obtained by making regular payments through GitHub, in amounts qualifying for a tier of rewards that includes “patron licenses”. A Patron License grants qualifying patrons permission to ignore any noncommercial or copyleft rules in all of my License Zero Prosperity licensed software.

By becoming a Patron, you'll be helping to ensure I can spend the time not just fixing bugs, adding features, releasing new versions, but also keeping projects afloat and growing. Think of investing in me not just for the output of my code but my continued role in the open-source ecosystem. If open software producers and maintainers like me aren't supported then communities won't grow and there may not be a fresh package when you need a bug fixed.

What does the Patron License cover

A Patron License grants qualifying patrons permission to ignore any noncommercial or copyleft rules in all of my License Zero Prosperity licensed software.

If your company derives a lot of value from my work and you need prompt answers from an expert via email or a private support desk backed by a commercial agreement with response guarantees then please contact me.
