Pharo Consortium is Getting Real

Here is the result of the work we did around the consortium for Pharo for about 2 years. We took into account all your remarks over the years and we think that the result is good and corresponds to what the community can support.

This consortium is important for Pharo's future and it will help us to deliver a system to help you making business.
Our goal is to be able to collect fundings to pay at least one full time engineer.

The idea is that all the consortium members will sign the same agreement. We will not handle modifications per partners. Now since we are starting the process if you spot some glitches on the form let us know.

We will launch soon two web sites:
        - one for the Pharo user association and
        - one for the Pharo consortium.

We really want to thank Inria for the constant support and the work of S. Karpf, P. Moreau and S. Perin.
