This is my monthly report for generous patrons who contributed €263 to support development of Nuvola Player in August 2015. Thanks to them, I spend 26 hours working on 12 tasks, which are listed bellow with a few comments, so my reward was €10 per hour (I keep it near a minimum wage in Western Europe).
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!
