Re: Please support GIMP Crowdfunding proposal. (KICKSTARTER or similar)
it also fosters a "take the money and run" approach to the participation in open-source projects. Once the feature is done, who maintains it? The original author? Of course not, since he works for money and the kickstarter money has dried up. The core Gimp team? They may have more important things to do... So eventually the kickstarter customers are stuck with the version of Gimp for which the feature was written.
