Thanks to Silvio Grosso, I and Dmitry have been and (are still being) very
generously sponsored, but that will come to an end and there's always more
that we can do, and maybe more people are interested in sponsoring the
development of Krita. Let's give them inspiration :)
So far we have a donate button. I don't know how much it is used or what is
the status of the donations from it. But I suppose that not much money yet.
My idea is to prepare some page describing what Krita community need
There are various areas we could mention in the page:
o Google Summer Of Code 2011
Could happen for Krita, could not of course.
We need some list of proposals - what can be done as GSoC, does not
have to be sponsored from community. Of course with risk that GSoC does not
have to happen.
o Thesis for universities
I did thesis for Krita and I think it was really interesting.
Let's prepare possible thesis and bachelour topics and who is willing to
mentor on those topics. They might have some "research" aims.
I have some friends who can help me in my university. Some Krita hackers
might be interested too in thesis about Krita maybe? Or maybe you have
contacts for teachers who would be interested.
We already have nice page here
o Community sponsored projects
Windows installer, manual. We could discuss what are your ideas. What
could be sponsored etc.
o Krita foundation
boud plan to setup this one. I think we are interested to know how it will
work. We could leave this point to the sprint probably.
My idea is to have an IRC meeting about various projects (or we can discuss
this at Krita sprint, but that will be little late), who would like to work as
sponsored developer and what kind of forms it can have (full time, part
time,..). Any related questions will be answered. All community members will
What do you think about it?
