You know how unconvincing that sounds, right? What successful
projects have you paid the authors for after the fact, in the past?
Ok then. Start with a written plan with measurable goals and
milestones. As far as passed sub-projects I've helped fund... not many
as it's not tax deductible. And If I send money to the main project
(this is tax deductible) I have no control over the distribution of my
funds to the people or sub-projects I want to support. It's a no win
situation. Solve it and you'll solve your funding problems. How does
Linux handle these types of funding issues?
