Gnash Developers and Linux Fund Raise Funds for OpenStreetMap Bounty

"Linux Fund and OpenMediaNow have expanded their partnership with the Gnash media player development team to bring OpenStreetMap editing support to the open source Flash® player, Gnash. This work will also improve YouTube compatibility and joins Linux Fund's existing effort to bring the Real Time Messaging Protocol support to Gnash. Linux Fund will be collecting donations to support these features in Gnash project as part of their on going mission to fund open-source projects. OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world. For more information on how to contribute to OSM support in Gnash see the Linux Fund website.

"In addition to direct donations to this cause, community members can help support all of the Linux Fund sponsored projects by applying for a Linux Fund Visa credit card. As a card holder each purchase you make will contribute to funding development of open source software."
