As a reference, I suggest to have a look at the PostgreSQL donation


for a couple of reasons:

1) they are a SPI affiliated project as we are, but they did work with
   SPI to actually have a nicer donation interface. I've never checked
   with SPI what's needed to have that, but that's evidently possible

2) as a bonus point to the above: their donation UI is PostgreSQL
   *only*. I think it's a major problem for Debian donations that when
   donating via the standard click & pledge interface the user get
   "offered" to donate to many other FOSS projects

3) they have a nice choice of Europe vs US donation option. For Europe,
   if that's fine with Joey, we might simply set up a Paypal account (as
   Postgres did) from which we will make bank transfer to FFIS bank
   account, as needed.
