Sounds great! :)

We still have to register the Xfce Foundation in Germany which I think
will take another 2 months. I'm not sure whether we are allowed to
receive donations before that already but I will check.

I like the idea of small monthly donations. AFAIK, there even is a
PayPal feature for subscriptions that is also used by Ardour. Maybe we
can set something like that up soon.
