A message for Linux.com registered users: We are in the process of making changes to the Linux forums. Starting Monday, 8/13/18 at 6:00 PM PT, you will be unable to access the forums. They will re-launch as soon as possible on Wednesday, 8/15/18 with new features and improved functionality. Thank you for your patience and stay tuned for the new improved forums.
Are there any schemes whereby people can pledge a bounty for an application to be created? We're obviously lucky to have so many people contributing applications and enhancements for Linux, but I personally would like to fund that development, or the development of new applications, which would then be released under a GPL licence.
