Subject crowd-funding Derby development
Date Thu, 23 Oct 2014 23:26:12 GMT
I was wondering what people would think about trying to crowd-fund new 
Derby features and bug fixes. Right now, the Derby developers tend to 
focus on features and bugs which are important to their employers. This 
does not address the needs of smallish companies and products which 
can't afford to pay a full-time developer to work on Derby. But maybe a 
smallish company could afford to carry, say, 1/20th of the cost of a 
feature or bug fix. If this appeals to the community, I'd be happy to 
brainstorm how we could crowd-fund more Derby development.

Any interest?
