    8 == 2012 ==
     4We want to continue to invest in and improve Twisted -- for the benefit of our users, and the public at large.   We can't do this without the support of our sponsors and, as a project, we want to publicly acknowledge certain donations through our revamped Twisted Project Sponsorship Program.  [[BR]]

     16 * Contributions are tax-deductible.   
    20 [ Tummy Inc.] expertly provides hosting for several Twisted servers, including our website and Subversion repository.
     18== Logos ==
     20Logos on the front page will only be there for the year that a sponsor has donated. Each year starts fresh again, with an opportunity to get your logo at the top by early sponsorship!
     22== Logo Requirements ==
     24Logos must be 160 pixels wide and 80 pixels tall.
     26== Sponsorship Levels ==
     28Below are the names and amounts associated with levels of sponsorship:
     30 * Diamondback: $20,000
     32 * Platinum Python: $10,000
     34 * Golden Tree Snake: $5,000
     36 * Silver Sidewinder: $2,000
     38 * Copperhead: $1,000
     40 * Aluminum Adder:  $100
     42== Non-Monetary Donations ==
     44The Twisted Project will consider the value of non-monetary donations to the project - for example, donations of hardware, software licenses, or hosting - on a case-by-case basis.  But, as a general rule, $5 worth of services will correspond to $1 of cash for sponsorship purposes.  We note that non-monetary donations may not be tax-deductible; to confirm, you should seek the counsel of a qualified tax professional. In general, we suggest cash donations, as that process is much simpler.
     46== How to Donate ==
    23 === Buildbot slave machines: ===
     49All donations to Twisted are collected by [ Software Freedom Conservancy], a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization and the corporate home of the Twisted Project.  Conservancy maintains a restricted account for the Twisted Project's use.
