I'll rehash an old email.
I know that some of us would like to get paid for lilypond work.
But I'm leery of jumping into this topic for a few reasons:
1) lilypond survives because of volunteer work. I think we should
be *extremely* cautious about anything which may jeopardize the
amount of time people volunteer.
2) if we officially organize these arrangements, there may be
currency exchange, tax issues, or legal issues that arise,
particularly given the international nature. Who gets the money?
How would it be distributed, if at all? How much loss to third
parties is acceptable?
3) it's not going to be enough. Companies and government grants
are where the real money for supporting programmers comes from;
hiring just one person from individual donations would require far
more users than we have.
