Why can't you launch a « Gimp Fund » through paypal, like the Blender foundation did ? I think that the Gimp has much more visibility than Blender did, and would have no problems raising money. Actually, it may even help to boost the development.
I'm not sure if it would boost development, it might as well hurt it. The problem with money is that we would somehow have to decide how to spend it. Paying developers from such a fund could cause quite some disagreements. If others are paid for their contribution, why would anyone want to contribute unless (s)he's paid as well?
I do believe however that a GIMP Foundation of some sort would make sense. It would make it a lot easier to raise fundings for events like developer conferences and would thus allow us to do them more frequently. I hope that we can discuss (or maybe even found) such an organization on the GIMP Developers Conference this summer.
I am on it. I'll have a presentation to give on the subject.
