Affero's software project was created to facilitate funding for Free Software and Open Source projects and to facilitate more effective dialogue among groups. With Affero, those who receive support from Internet forums or mailing lists, or private discussions can now say "thanks" quickly and easily through ratings, comments and donations to the causes selected by the person who helped them. Affero combines a peer based reputation system with a commerce system. Individuals can rate other individuals and make payments on their behalf. Any person can rate another person's contribution. The system doesn't come bundled with any particular forum or community platform, so any independent community host can integrate the services and individuals can share reputation across various communities.
