New GitHub marketing action


The following was sent to GitHub projects this week.


Daniel Compton of GitHub:

New Relic wants to support [redacted] through GitHub Sponsors!

"Hi [redacted]!

GitHub Sponsors has a new service in private beta for invoiced customers. It lets companies who can’t pay with a credit card use Sponsors to support open source maintainers like yourself.

New Relic is one of our launch partners with this service and has selected [redacted] as someone they’d like to support for $100/month for three months.

If you’d like to receive their support, you can sign up for GitHub Sponsors at You can connect it with your existing Open Collective account.

Once you sign up, I’ll send you a short agreement to cover New Relic’s payments. The invoiced method is slightly different, New Relic purchases a project health dashboard from GitHub, and GitHub purchases publicly available open source data from you.

Let me know if you have any questions and I can answer them. You can also write in to GitHub Support if you’re concerned about the source of this message and I can answer them from there.

Thanks, Daniel."
