Monetary donations not currently accepted by Arch

I'm just wondering why does Arch not accept monetary donations at the moment?  I may have missed an announcement at some point but it did until quite recently.

Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

Thanks wonder.  Hopefully Arch can find a way to resolve this soon.

A bit of a thread bump, but...you may have noticed a new icon on the home page as well as on the Donations page. We are accepting donations again now that our SPI member project status has been approved.

Great news! Long live Arch!
Unfortunately I spent all the extra money I had for this year last Thursday so you have to wait quite a while for my contributions ;P

Arch also offers an [unsupported] section in the Arch Linux User Repository (AUR), which contains over 9,000 build scripts

I'd say well over 9000 :-)
