I am suggesting a smaller donation package named 'Admirer of Eclipse'. For a donation of $15 or $20, the donor will get a batch like Friend of Eclipse and Early access to Helios release.
There are two main reasons I came up with this suggestion.
1. There is much less donation from AP region compared to other geographies. This is probably because $35 when converted to local currency becomes a significant figure. I feel may be $15 or $20 is more affordable.
2. One of the major benefit the 'Friends of Eclipse' enjoy is the faster downloads. Now since most Eclipse users at least here in India (and probably adjoining Geos) have 128 kbps or less internet connection. Hence, the larger bandwidth from Eclipse servers is no more a benefit for them.
