I don't know much about Kickstarter either, but I might be able to
work on Kdenlive (and MLT maybe?) fulltime for 1 or 2 months, spring
next year. Of course I'd need some money then. All the Kickstarter
projects I have seen so far were bigger projects, so maybe a simple
donation would be better? Since there just was the Novacut Kickstarter
project I also doubt that it would be too successful.
