Core team returns user's funds accidentally sent to Monero's General Fund address

Core team’s binaryFate1 has returned the funds that were accidentally2 sent by xorqq to Monero’s General Fund3 address:

After donating some money to the general fund for Monero, when sending all my money to myself, I accidentally pasted the donation address. I feel like Im gonna have a heart attack [..] First time I’ve cried in years [..]

The issue was resolved in less than 24 hours:

My issue with accidentally sending my entire XMR balance to the fund has been resolved. Thanks a lot to binaryFate, and thanks to the entire team and volunteers for developing Monero. You guys rock.
