Basically the deal is PFAF is skint we are £100,000 in debt.
We have virtually no income and our only real product
of value (the database) we mainly give away free. A lot
of prior work has gone into the database (probably about
10 man years). It would be nice if there was someway
in which the project could financially help pfaf.
The plant images are for us a way we can add value to the CDROM
version of the database. If they are publically availiable
on the internet we loose the added value.
So currently the images are not available for free.

Not really, I know its a cost we bear. It might work best if
some part of my wages go to pfaf.
