[Gimp-user] Crowdfunding Proposal for Symmetry/Mirror Painting in GIMP

I support this idea but I don't think we should limit ourselves to this feature.
All the long term goals the team has could easily be solved with hiring more

I am all for more features specifically for painters :)

Lately several people have asked why we won't do crowdfunding for
GIMP. The general position of GIMP developers towards this proposition
is that the core developers usually have "day jobs", thus won't raise
money this way.
Well I am one of them and I don't have a day job right now, thus I
have decided to give it a try.

During the Libre Graphics Meeting in Madrid, the painter who was with
me tried the mirror mode during Krita workshop. And I thought it would
be a nice addition to the GIMP. Apparently I am not alone because I
see regularly messages asking for it.

So I started a test implementation to see how it would go. And it
works well. See the demo: http://youtu.be/osSiETyae5c

But now if I want it in GIMP, this is where it will really take time,
to make a nice and clean implementation and a well-thought internal
design.  So I start a crowdfunding initiative.
Have a look there with all the explanation:

And if you like it, please fund me and spread the word:
