Hi @frederic_devernay and thanks for joining this conversation!
Can you please explain a bit more what exactly this statement mean? Is Natron going to receive financial support for one more year or simply the website hosting will be covered?
As I wrote in a PM to you, I’d like to start contributing to the project and so far it seems that you are in charge to coordinate the development and such things! I’m here to help you out and I think it’s the same for others as well.
Regarding this very intersting proposal, do you think it’s a good starting point for contributing to Natron? I’d be interested in joining the team and I’m interested in improving Natron, and even the core, both in terms of performance and features, and thus I’d like to actually do something to start understanding how things work and how to actually make them work better! Do you think that such a project would be a good starting point?
Since you are here, I’d like to also make some questions about the involvement of the community into the future of the project:
- Would it be a good idea to let someone manage the website, maybe do some redesign and help the project to get more visibility?
- Would it be a good idea to start thinking about possibile ways to make the project sustainable from a financial point of view? Maybe some crowdfunding, cloud subscription system or simply a Donate button on the website?
- Is this the only item in the roadmap at the moment? What are the goals for the next releases? I’m sorry if this question seems to be patetic or annoying, but I’d like to know what’s the plan for the future if there’s any and wheater this is not the case if it is possibile to start thinking about it and how to make it happen.
To sum everything up, we as “community” want to simply step up and start caring more about the project.
Just for saying that, I’m here to help, let’s gime something to do!
