Project Sponsorship

A huge thank you to everyone at Bytemark for sponsoring Ubuntu MATE and MATE Desktop. Bytemark are providing hosting and covering all server/bandwidth costs for both projects. This sponsorship means nearly all of the Ubuntu MATE crowd funding can be directed towards funding development projects. :-D
