Fortran-lang joins NumFOCUS 🎉

Hello Everyone,

Big news! We are pleased to announce that Fortran-lang is now officially fiscally sponsored by NumFOCUS, joining the likes of many other great organisations such as Numpy, SciPy, PETSc and LFortran.

Being fiscally sponsored by NumFOCUS means that Fortran-lang will now have access to a number of resources that will help us grow and improve the community. This includes the ability to accept donations, managed by NumFOCUS (more on how that works soon!), applying for grants through the Small Development Grants program, access to the NumFOCUS network of projects and contributors, along with legal, financial and marketing support.

We are still figuring out exactly how to use all these new resources, and there is still some work to be done to get everything set up, but we are really excited about what this means for the future of Fortran-lang!

A big thank you from the Fortran-lang team (@certik, @milancurcic, @awvwgk, @lkedward and @gnikit) to all the amazing community members, contributors, and supporters who helped us get here. We’ll keep you posted on any new developments!
