Google Pledges Annual Donation to Samba

The Samba Team is delighted to announce that Google has committed to providing the Samba project with an annual donation of US $20,000.00.

"This is fantastic news for the Samba project" said team member Andrew Tridgell, "and will allow us to provide more support for developers who could not otherwise afford the travel expenses to attend conferences. Contributions like these make a huge difference!".

This is the first donation of its type for Samba since the project joined the Software Freedom Conservancy. Membership of the SFC makes accepting donations like this considerably easier for the team.
