Re: Formation of Gnome-user-foundation

This would only be a way to enhance the development of Gnome not to replace it.
I do agree with you that this would be bad for the developing world,
we could have
a system where there was a minimun of 3$ annual fee and prefered 30$ but you
could contribute any amount you liked, the point would be not to dictate what
core developers are doing that would be stupit, the point would be to get
people that are on the fringe to develop more for Gnome and they can do that
because they don't have to worry about working to much because they will get
Also your logic works both ways, imagine people in asia and south
america getting
1000$ dollers to work on Gnome.

Ps these ideas are more inclined with left anarchism and gift system
that capitalism
