Will mORMot be sponsored by Embarcadero?

In this post about some potential financial backing of Delphi open source projects, with heavy community involvement, Embarcadero mentions mORMot.

It seems to be a good thing if mORMot get sponsored!

But they are not saying how much you'll get. Seems more like you're doing advertisement for them and then you maybe get a few hundred euros which doesn't even reflect your work on your open-source project but they get several new customers due to your work and advertisement...
Would've been better if they say every project gets 5k so you'd know what to expect and if it's worth to do all the necessary steps.

A win-win, isn't it?

I don't have any Twitter account, so I can't apply, I am afraid.

It sounds a bit cynical, but fair...

Sometimes I have an impression that it is rather the mORMot that sponsors Delphi and it is Delphi that is mORMot powered ;-)
