Hey Simon Sounds great! I'll draft a script then?

@Till, I think the fact that Novacut just did one is a good reason to do one
now. Kdenlive is public and is waaay past proof of concept. Users can test
drive it for themselves. We could advertise at as funding for version 1.0. I
can speak to that personally since I haven't been developing but it's a

@Dan. Yeah I can totally see how for some people they can't put more time
into it then they already have but this funding could potentially be used to
raise awareness and attract new developers to work out kinks, bugs and
features etc.

Who can we get in touch with at Kdenlive? To make this work we would either
need to work with someone on the main team or get some kind of privileges to
make sure we can promise things like adding a backers name to the site etc.
