I'm not sure, but I'm afraid there's a problem of understanding. "Crowdfunding" is
(imho) a topic for third parties who have specific interests for changes to AOO.

"Crowdfunding" is when:
someone collects money or resources to *independently* make the changes *he*
needs. He can return code to the project, but they must not do.

Sponsorship or support for the AOO project itself, is when:
someone donates money for Apache, or paid developers and provides the manpower

I do not see that apache should set up rules or aids provide for Crowdfounding
because it is not an issue for the AOO project *itself*.
