In the past semester all "consistent" donations were done by private
users, and the current donation mechanism is pretty inflexible and
doesn't allow to give consent to publish the donor credentials in an
automated fashion. The request can be done through explicit request
(e.g. by mail) if the need arises.

Alternatively we may create a sort of "contest" for which a company
can propose its sponsorship and gain some visibility on a dedicated
section of the website.
