The folks at Let’s Encrypt have kicked off a crowd funding campaign. If you use their service for your self hosted Discourse site, or generally support what they are doing, consider making a donation (and spread the word).
Yes, we already donated an estimate of what we would have paid for Comodo certs for a year. That is my recommendation – if you can afford it, pay them what you would have paid, if HTTPS certs were no longer free!
And of course we host the Let’s Encrypt community gratis.
They’re called “Let’s Encrypt” and they’re not accepting bitcoin as donation. Strange guys
