This news from Gimp is very similar to where we are in Inkscape: https://old.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/ot6wtr/funding_gimp_developers_for_sustainable/ with users unaware of how difficult it is to fund development via charity funds. Well done gimp for being brave and promoting their patreon supported developers!
