Message from David Pope Anderson (Director of BOINC).

The BOINC project has transitioned to a community-based governance model. This model is summarized here and described in detail here.

BOINC's funding from the U.S. National Science Foundation has ended, at least for the time being.
This funding supported me, Rom Walton, and Charlie Fenton.
We're now working on other things, although we'll stay involved in BOINC at some level.

The BOINC project will continue, and will be run according to a community-based model rather than centrally.
In essence, the people who contribute to BOINC now make the decisions about it.
This model is summarized here: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/ProjectGovernance and described in detail here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1C6pU5RqidYBxk9oyAevm1yH1tn4Hw27oM8YpvsnR-gg

There will probably be little visible change.
The BOINC software will continue to work.
The translation system, Alpha testing project, BOINC web site,message boards, and email lists will continue to operate.
However, any new development and major bug fixes to BOINC will need to be done by volunteer programmers.
I'm confident that the BOINC community will meet the challenge.

I welcome your feedback.
Please post it to boinc_admin@googlegroups.com, a new email list for discussions about the BOINC project as a whole.

-- David

Well, well, well...
I think this is a great opportunity for our friends at Bitcoin Utopia to show their skills in gathering funds for the development of the system they've exploited.

We have done that once before but you DO bring up a good point, I will bring it up on their forums! THANKS for the idea, keeping Boinc running is always a good thing to me. I posted it here:

Just to follow up on this the Admins at Bitcoin Utopia have contacted Dr Anderson and he has not gotten back to them yet about another funding campaign. The idea is to fund Boinc not Seti, but no one knows if the too can be separated in that way. We have had a campaign for Seti in the past but they reportedly don't need anymore help right now.
