>> Hello,
>> It has come to my attention that some of our developers are now working
>> full-time on Parabola (and not getting paid enough to even pay the 
>> bills!).
>> We should come up with a plan to give these hard workers a minimum
>> living wage. The only way I see this possible will be a weekly or
>> monthly giving program, the other options such as KickStarter or
>> IndieGogo are not sustainable on the long-term.
>> As such, I think we should reach a consensus on a good monthly giving
>> platform to use for the project, and how the money will be distributed.
>> I think that the core developers that are working full-time should be
>> paid a reasonable living wage amount for their efforts, and any excess
>> could be given as bounty to part-time volunteers for fixing complex
>> bugs, and/or to help grow the much needed infrastructure.
>> In any case, here are the available platforms that are: a)
>> Libre/OpenSource and b) Monthly or weekly payments options to encourage
>> continued sustainable donations:
>> * GratiPay - >> https://gratipay.com
>> * Liberapay - >> https://liberapay.com>>  (Better I think, since it 
>> includes
>> Team payment)
>> Others/non-free: Patreon,  do nxt, etc.
>> Taxes etc. would need to be handled by Ceate, but I don't think that
>> will be an issue since we already have a good relationship with them for
>> our current donations.
>> Thoughts?
>> Luke
