we've added a new donation option to our website - a Flattr button.
It is located just below the donations button in the navigation menu of
Flattr is a microdonation service that allows you to distribute an
arbitrary amount of money - for example 2 euros - to all the things you
flattr (i.e. click on their Flattr buttons) per month.
Six weeks ago, we received a request to accept donations via this
service, and I thought that it was at least worth a try.
Today, I'm looking at a Flattr thing called
which has been flattred 4 times (not surprising, as it hasn't been
public yet), with a balance of 18.59 euros, and I'm still struggling
with the task to forward this sum to the GIMP Paypal account without any
intermediate steps :)
Nevertheless, there's now a simple and easy donation option for anyone
who wants to contribute to the GIMP funds - which are spent on
contributors' travel and accommodation expenses or hardware like
graphics tablets - without resorting to cheques, wire transfers or
Paypal, which had been the only options on http://www.gimp.org/donating/
up to now.
