Introduction to the new Bareos Co-Funding programme

Today we would like to draw your attention to our recently introduced co-financing programme.


Often Bareos users offer us to provide the funding of new features which we are not able to implement due to cost restrictions and corresponding priorities in our development process. These users cannot or do not always want to fund the development costs in full, though.


Through our co-funding program we therefore want to enable multiple users to raise the necessary funds for new features together. Thereby we want to give you the opportunity to co-finance features that are already planned, as well as advance your own proposals for new features.


Speaking of features, we would like to encourage you to take a look at one of our current co-sponsored ones, the „Extended ACL Filtering“. This feature will expand the ACL support of Bareos, making it possible to restrict user's access to the resources that have been assigned to him. Two sponsors have already contributed 54 % of the funds needed to complete the feature. If you want to take closer look at this or get more information about our programme in general, feel free to visit our funding page at Your are welcome to contribute any amount from 100 Euros upwards to get it off the ground.


Contributors will be listed on our co-funding page in the sponsors section (if they want to). The amount will be invoiced by us, the "Bareos GmbH & Co KG", a German-based company. The features will become part of the Bareos open source solution, licensed AGPL.


If you want to contribute to the Extended ACL Filtering feature or any other on the list, or even propose your own one, feel free to contact us via email and state the amount you would want to throw in. Your offer should at least be valid for 3 months. Please inform us how long you hold open your offer.


Looking forward to working with you on bringing exciting new Bareos features to life!
