I have an idea so much time but I feared to make a suggestion  . Now , I 
want to explain it :

In both Free Pascal and Lazarus web sites , there may be pages about
projects which may be described by the Free Pascal and/or Lazarus 
developers . In those projects a problem and requirements of solution of 
that problem may be documented .

For example ,

Problem : Transporting Free Pascal to a new X platform .
Requirements : A list of computing server X(1) with specialties  ,
                a list client computer X(2) with specialties  ,
                a list of books for theoretical needs ,
                amount M of cash for ... expenses ,
                etc. .

People having facilities would support such projects as much as possible 
by donating money , hardware , books , etc. .

I think such an approach would help to solve problems in much more 
shorter time .

As an example , please visit Wikipedia in the following main page :


Last year there was a campaign around 5 million US dollars , when that 
amount had been obtained , they discontinued the campaign .

This year , they are trying to raise 7.5 million US dollars :


Sometimes , an idea is expressed to emphasize unimportance of an Open 
Source Projects . In universities and other schools Pascal is in their 
curricula . Free Pascal and Lazarus are very important tools for such 
courses . Even only this usage in its sole existence shows importance of 
  Free Pascal and Lazarus .

Thank you very much .
