Well, there are software developers paid by Canonical; they write code to 
Ubuntu. E.g. 
Michael Vogt who has written unattended-upgrades and some other apt-related 

Ubuntu still does not provide satisfactory automatic kernel removal system at 
least by default. Many end users still get their system wrecked due to kernels 
filling the system. Canonical could do something to help users of supported 
Ubuntu releases to deal with the awkward issue easily. Funding my script would 
be one such thing.

I also have considered publishing the script, and linking a donate button 
somewhere. That way people who have benefited from the script and who maybe are 
not contributors themselves could show some gratitude (if they are aware of 
such a button). But if I believe Gunnar Hjalmarsson, they would not pay anyway.
