Civi is one of those pieces of software that makes you wonder how early humans could have survived without it. Every nonprofit seems to be using Civi for some aspect of their fundraising, and I'm always surprised at the creative ways different people find to make it work for their needs. Happy to be able to help out a bit. There's a lot of energy going into this project--definitely checkout the forums and the IRC channel if you're curious.
AustLII is the leader in the free access to law movement and has a philospophical bias towards open source systems. After investigating all the other possible major alternatives it seemed logical to turn to CiviCRM. We have software developer resources, and though it is not core business, we may be able to direct some of these resources towards improving CiviCRM for the community.
I've been working with CiviCRM since 2006 or thereabouts. The community is outstanding in providing support and sharing expertise, which combines with a strong product to enable me in turn to deliver better results for the organisations that I work with. I only hope that over time I will be able to repay the debt by supporting other newcomers to CiviCRM.
