We are now able to enroll in github’s sponsor ship program  and have the donations go straight to our account with NumFOCUS! However the catch is that in order to configure it we must make 2FA  required for membership in the Matplotlib organization. Currently about 50% of us do not have it set up.
The status-quo is that the “sponsor” button directs people to https://github.com/sponsors/numfocus . Any money donated that way goes to the NF general account, but it is not earmarked specifically for us.
I am inclined to enable required 2FA (I was thinking about trying to do this anyway) but would like to open the floor to any concerns. If you have concerns that you don’t feel comfortable discussing on the mailing list please email me directly.
I would like to aim to flip the switch (which will remove everyone without 2FA form the org!) in 4 weeks.
ps: I personally use a yubikey and love it
