Users of Erlang have a great deal of shared infrastructure, in particular a shared language implementation. All Erlang users have an interest in their shared infrastructure being maintained and improved but what is the best model to fund it?
This talk will look at the consortium model and in particular at how it has worked in the Haskell world. The purpose is to provoke an informed discussion of whether a similar model might work in the Erlang world.
