How much would you pay per month to be listed on the 'donate' landing
page as an OpenAFS supporter, and have access to nag-free binaries?

As a comparison, what is your college monthly spend on RHEL? How
do we, as a community of developers, make a case to your management
that the value provided by AFS is of the same order of magnitude as
a RHEL subscription (**or** the staff time for maintaining CentOS),
and make the same order of magnitude contribution to OpenAFS.

I think in-kind donation of staff time and machines for testing new
releases would be an excellent way to make non-monetary contributions.
