As aacid points out, it's quite possible that they want to sponsor Konqueror 
specifically. Which is fine. If Konqueror developers have the infrastructure 
in place to receive donations and deal with taxes (or don't care about 
either) then have at it -- but I really would suggest using the existing 
infrastructure of KDE e.V. (preferred) or Amarok (if Konqueror is a 
sub-project of Amarok) to receive donations. Both can earmark donations, I'm 

There's no mention of a quid-pro-quo in the offer, but remember that we 
generally don't sell or farm links and that the tax-exempt status of KDE e.V. 
is very important. 

Anyway, has anyone answered these kind folks yet?
