This is my monthly report for generous patrons who contributed €111.76 to support development of Nuvola Player in May 2015 before my exam time break. Thanks to them, I spend 11.96 hours working on eight tasks, which are listed bellow with a few comments, so my reward was €9.34 per hour (I keep it near a minimum wage in Western Europe). Two Gratipay payments received during my exam time break have been counted to the fundraier of June 2015.
My dream is to work as an independent open source developer on software for all users around the world. Software for you. You can support my work on Nuvola Player via PayPal, Gratipay, Patreon, Flattr or Bitcoin. Let's make Nuvola Player more awesome!

Tiliado Repository Installer used to abort when the "apt-get update" command failed. However, it was found out that so many users have broken repositories in their APT sources lists (dead Launchpad PPAs, for example) that it is better to ignore these errors and only print a warning.
These patrons support development of Nuvola Player. Thank you all!
