Cloudflare is a clear leader when it comes to DDoS protection, WAF, Edge services and computing. Cloudflare also has the clear advantage of being the only provider with unmetered* bandwidth and a decent free plan.
We’ve been using Cloudflare for the past 6 months and have been able to reduce our infrastructure costs by more than 90%.
Cloudflare offers a fairly standard sponsorship for non-profit open source projects that consist in giving the project free access to their Pro tier in exchange for a link to their website on our front page.

While we acknowledge the recent drama surrounding Cloudflare, they are a company hard to do without. Even though they had a problematic first approach, we also have to recognize that the issue is now resolved. We believe that despite those issues, the massive benefits brought by Cloudflare still make it a sponsor worth considering.
We want to hear your opinion, according to our process defined by RFC 61.
