Hi *,

yes, by a strict definition this mail is spam ;-) so feel free to skip
it, but you will miss something great :-P

I make it short - this is to announce a new plugin for DokuWiki called
"sync". As the name suggests it allows you to sync pages and media
files between two wikis. IMHO this is the best invention since sliced
bread of course but there's a catch: Unlike with all my previous
plugins I sense a business opportunity ;-).

This is my chance to get filthy rich with Open Source ^_^. Well or at
least buy another electronic gimmick (do I hear someone say PS3?). So
instead of releasing the plugin right into the wild I'm selling it.
But since I still like to have it used by people who can't afford to
buy software (think students, developing countries, people crushed by
the economy) I'm selling it to the rich people only :-).

Here's the deal: I want $750 (which isn't too much if you consider
that I worked several days on it). But I only want this money once and
not necessarily from a single entity. I just like to have everybody
who can afford it to chip in, and as soon as it reaches $750 I'll
release the plugin as open source. For free. For everybody. Everybody

I already set up the plugin page at
http://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:sync and you can read more about the
plugin and the "sale" in my blog at


PS: don't worry I don't plan to do that on all my future plugins ;-)
