Anyone know what's the «progress» of this requests? There are devs

Hi, thanks for the reply. I started this thread aaaages ago now - nice to
see it is still going!
The idea was to encourage dev's to put features up here
and crowd-fund them.
An example is that one of the core gimp dev's has been having a try; he
does gimp part time and works as a paid developer on other projects the
rest of the time. In this case, the idea is for him to be able to devote
more of his time to gimp by replacing some of his paid work with
crowd-funded work - its a win/win situation really. The main problem with
the gimp project was that the developer chose a feature that was not
especially popular, so with InkScape, I thought it would be a good idea to
ask people first and to give the dev's some ideas as to which thinks people
are really excited about.
My involvement, by the way, is that of a "connector" - an idea the open
funding people are working on, where Free Software people
(users/advocates/developers etc) who have community/marketing/design skills
can help developers with presentation, videos, social media when they want
to crowd-fund a feature.
In general, I am now doing my "connector" role only within communities I
know really well. With InkScape, while there have been loads and loads of
replies from users with ideas, I have had very little response from the
developers and I don't know any of them personally. I would love it if some
of these ideas that would otherwise not get made, could get crowd-funded
into being :)
Again, do contact me if you want to have a go :)
