gpodder.net is run as a hobby project without continuous funding for servers, storage and bandwidth. We rely on contributors and donations to keep the site running and improve it constantly.
If you want to contribute to gpodder.net by writing code, check out the Development page. We also appreciate contributions of non-coding work, such as web and interface design, server operations, testing, etc. If you are interested, join the mailing list or the IRC channel #gpodder on chat.freenode.net.
