So far this has been the most constructive idea that has been brought up in this thread. So why not? Let's try to come up with a list of bugs that block the GIMP 2.8 release and put bounties on them. Who wants to volunteer to prepare a list of bugs that are worth having a bounty put on them? The stream of donations has dropped a little but there is still significantly more money coming in than usual. We have received more than $1,000 in the last 7 days.
