Does anyone know of #FLOSS business plans which preserve developer autonomy and maximize user value?

Pay-walling and Freemium are financially exclusive; hosting adverts is aesthetic suicide. Donations can be good, but often don't provide enough security for developers of new projects. Paying for features can complicate developer priorities, drawing focus away from the backend.

I'm interested to hear all ideas, both theoretical and practiced.

Hey #Lyon people! I am on my to your city to visit the wonderful @maxlath and @jums.

I would also like to visit La Myne and similar spaces, and I would love to meet up with people involved in the #duniter or #framasoft projects to get more understanding.

Message me; excuse my English 😅

going through @inventaire code with @jums we came to an agreement: we shouldn't be allowed to say "this is the heart of the application" more than once a day. Harder than it seems ^^

Alternative history thought experiment: What if the Linux kernel had been originally licensed as MIT rather than GPLv2 ?

Surely by now there would be closed forks, and if the forker could generate enough hype and had enough cash then they could probably hire more developers to work on the fork and make it where most of the development occurs.
