Just reacting on gittip and gratipay being mentioned. Attended an interesting 
talk last month at Capitole du Libre touching on this kind of platforms. There 
are actually several concerns about those two, one of them is also the fact 
that they focus on the US while we're in Europe which leads to some 

So I'm spreading the information that an extra one appeared, based on gratipay 
codebase and with what looked to me like a better contribution model named 
liberapay: https://liberapay.com/

Just my 0.02€, in case that could be of use to someone.
