The TYPO3 Association is pleased to announce the first three sponsored 
projects for TYPO3 v4. This new concept was introduced at T3DD08 and is now 
launched officially today. The TYPO3 Association felt the need for more 
involvement of agencies using TYPO3 in the form of sponsoring for fostering 
the developement of TYPO3. Funneling money to the developers (in particular 
Core Team members) will allow them to spend more time working on the Core and 
will thus speed up the development of TYPO3.

Contrary to what may have been done before, sponsored projects aim for a very 
clear and precise approach:

- each project comes with a project description outlining its goals and the
  amount of money needed for achieving them
- each project has a team, ready to work on it as soon as the money is raised
- a team of reviewers is already defined, so that there are no bad surprises
  upon integration into the Core of TYPO3
- every completed project will go into the Core of TYPO3

The first three project that are up for sponsoring are:

- the new Installer that will provide new users with a smoother TYPO3
  installation experience and enable experienced users to customise their
  install tool.
- the new List module which aims to fully renew the old List module and add
  some general new features (like drag & drop) that could be used throughout
  the TYPO3 backend.
- the new FORM object that will provide enhanced form capabilities, a
  user-friendly wizard and powerful built-in validation methods.

This last project does not yet have a full team of developers and reviewers, 
so there are also opportunities to take for enthusiastic developers.
