Donation -- how to tell

Thunderbird needs money - no question, if donation is the right/most
important way for that, the project should *not* be shy to tell the
users about it!
Following the discussions on tb-planning there are some/too many
comments speaking about negative impacts for the users. This reminds me
to the German words: "In Schönheit sterben".
There is translation on a PriceWaterhouse document
/Dying virtuously is not a serious option for any company!
Page 12 - Dr Rolf Hartl is the managing director of Swiss
We want to live (/not to die/) -- so some more courage is needed!
From my perspective seeing how users work with Thunderbird -- how they
configure it -- placing the donation request on the start page isn't enough.
To be clear:/The "Start Page" is launched as a predefined page in the
Message Pane -- *only* /-- and displayed only in rare situations./
Summing up the possibilities to place "reminders" for a donation:
* open a tab or show the TB startpage with ..
o the "Hamburger"
o Statusbar -- only visible if enabled
o Main Menu -- only visible with F10
* open a web page with updating
o currently there is no such page after updating -- afaik
* more ???
And -- not /Dying virtuously --/ I would place the donation reminder at
*all* those places.
