+by three); and another developer – Remi Meier – is a Ph.D. student
+and gets paid from another source already.
 A 10% general donation will go to the `Software Freedom
 Conservancy`_ itself, the non-profit organization of which the PyPy
 project is a member and which manages all the issues related to
