If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:

Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch πŸ˜‚)

Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.

Me: And she has Indian and Jamaican ancestors.

@Liberapay Liberapay keeps sending me notifications about weekly payments. Is that correct? The money in the Mango wallet is still sitting there. Is that correct too? Which is easier for you -- sending it to me over PayPal or transferring it to someone else on Liberapay?
