Is this effectively the solution to work around bug 1018951?

1. Do we have a SeaMonkey Paypal donation page?
2. Do we have a suitable Paypal account?
2a. I assume the Paypal account is registered to the SeaMonkey Org and not to KaiRo or some other personal account?

Jens: SeaMonkey website still works via CVS right? Just wondering what CVS branch/CVSROOT I need to work on the website (somehow I lost that info).

Yes, still CVS. No branches (as far as I know) in use.

Do we actually get money via MoFo? As far as I am aware there is no way of specifying which project you want to support when donating via MoFo. If we do leave this option in, is it better being the 3rd option and explaining that the donation goes into funding all of MoFo's work not necessarily just the SeaMonkey project?

Not any more. The SeaMonkey specific donation page is now 404. Hence the purpose of this bug.

We should definitely remove this option.

Also the Thunderbird team has so far been unable to locate the monies supposed to have been collected for them by MoFo. Can someone check the existence of the SeaMonkey bucket and how much remains?

You mean the "old" SeaMonkey bucket? It has been located a while ago already.

Actually this sentence does not make any more sense I think? It would matter (at least in Germany) if we're talking about a organization serving the public good, which we aren't (from a tax law point of view): In Germany you can lower your tax liability by donating to such organizations and with a donation confirmation you have some proof for that.

Yes, in general that should work. Just some small extra notes from me.

I think flowing text like here is usually wrapped in <p> throughout the rest of the site.
Also: Trailing whitespace.

I'm currently at work so I cannot check, but since /donate/ still leads somewhere else, I assume there's some Redirect rule in .htaccess that needs to be removed.

Sorry, not quite yet - http://www.seamonkey-project.org/donate/ works without any redirect for me now, but I see a "broken" <?> character in the bank's location. It looks correct when I change from Unicode to Western encoding. Thus, I think this should be either an entity definition or a UTF-8 encoding, or use an international transcription of that character.

Perhaps the Paypal link should also point to the donation form (or it at least mention something like click the donate button below)?
