Over at lilypond.org, which is open source, one thing the developers do
is accept commissions for "sponsored features" in the code. They are
paid for producing a feature which is subsequently put into the open
So, I ask what it would cost to have SVG support and Steve says,"I'll do
it for xx(x?)Euros." I send Steve the money via PayPal and the world is
a better place.
Don't get me wrong, the code is a volunteer effort, but those volunteers
have plenty of work to do without dealing with a small group's wishlist.
However they may be willing to put in the time if they can buy more beer.
... just a thought.
