The result of this bounty being reached is that the Poseidon USB stack will be ported to AROS, and released as open source under the AROS Public License.

All Amiga people?

All Amiga/AROS people, where are you?

It would be nice to have at least one comment from someone who is involved.

About the funding itself: kind of makes one pitiful when big multinational corporations are pouring money into certain already well-funded FOSS projects, but at the same time smaller projects have difficulties raising tiny amounts of money to fund their development.

Here I have enormous respect to Google and their SoC.

Companies have little incentive to fund small projects such as AROS or Syllable because there is little prospect of a return on their investment. Although sad, it's true.
