As far as what this looks like long-term? If sponsorship is successful enough, I'll be able to put a lot more of my time into open source, and I'll be able to do it more independently and freely in the future as sponsorships build up. That's a ways away but it's a goal!
That said, I'm pretty new to this, and if anyone has any idea what sort of thing they'd like to see from these sponsorship tiers, I'm all ears. Access to some private discussion repo, maybe? An acknowledgement in my READMEs for projects you've helped fund? Let me know!
