Regarding the question: Did we publish this to harm the CakePHP community?

The answer is no, we are sorry if this shines a bad light on the project. We had two motivations to publish this post. For one, we wanted to reach out for help with this bill. However, we also wanted to share our story with the community, giving them the chance to push for improvements of the situation CakePHP is in.

But you don't have to take our word for it. We already have a few new plugins & components lined up for release. This project has a community of great people, and just as they have supported us in this tough moment, we plan to continue supporting them.

Again, thanks to everybody who helped, also those who are not involved with CakePHP at all!

Happy to see that you are recouping the money to pay Hotel GLS, as the stay there was great and they were very helpful for a very lost american such as myself. Hopefully this all gets sorted out properly and no hamsters are harmed.

It's too bad that pledgie didn't change my name to my actual name and just link my twitter account... :)
