No applications have been received for the past 3 months.  If any Linux
developers would like assistance in purchasing documentation, manuals,
hardware upgrades, software, etc, please get in touch.  The money in
the fund is here to help you.

On behalf of the Linux community, I would like to extend a very warm
thank-you to those who have donated money to the Development Fund.  The
first results of the Development Fund has allowed Harald Koenig to
incorporate support for the Trio 64 graphics chipset in Xfree86's 3.1.1
X11 servers.

I would also like to thank Shurflo, KOYAMA Hiroshi, Cees de Groot and Steve
Durbin for their very generous contribution to the Fund.  Their generosity
will enable the development of further projects that will benefit the entire
Linux community.

Another special thank-you goes to iiNet Technologies - the Internet provider
for Linux International in Australia - who have kindly paid for all network
charges associated with LI's internet connection.  The value of which has
totalled approximately AUD$400.
