@Tryphon absolutely, but those are different and perhaps even harder problems, though I suspect things like Patreon and/or app subscriptions could work. I suspect people would be much happier paying a recurring fee for software where they feel like a part of its community and can see its ongoing development


@albin @Tryphon but in a similar argument to your recent one re Github, as much as I like Jack Conte, I'd recommend using a FOSS patronage platform like Librapay or Fosspay (github.com/ddevault/fosspay) instead... :)
