I believe such a document wouldn't be a bad idea at all, as you
mentioned, posts such as these happen quite often and many developers
honestly believe it is impossible to make any sustainable living from
free software.

On the points mentioned by the Aseprite developer, one I happen to
agree with is that many standard package managers in GNU/Linux
distributions don't have good support for presenting paid packages.

Was there ever a discussion about this?
