[zeromq-dev] Commercial support network for ZeroMQ

Hi all,

I'd like to collect views on building a support network for ZeroMQ.
This would expand on what iMatix already does, but make it more
transparent and scalable.

In our community have small independent firms and experts who
specialize in different areas of ZeroMQ. We have commercial users who
would benefit from guaranteed long term support. Bringing these
together will allow users to fund development of ZeroMQ. Right now
it's fragmented.

Does anyone have experience of other open source communities building
such networks?

My idea is to collect the experts on one page on zeromq.org, and
define a range of support options; and mediate the process via iMatix.
The bulk of support fees would go straight to the network; I'd like to
use part to promote new projects around 0MQ.
