On a lark, I checked out Bountysource Salt.

Here's their C++ projects you can support:

	Tiled: $1027 pledged this month
	ZNC: $0 this month
	TrinityCore: $0 this month
	Gammu: $0 this month
	Arduino: $0 this month
	NetMauMau: $0 this month
	MineTest: $0 this month
	NLUlite: $0 this month
	KDevelop: $0 this month $0 this month

Checking their Python project offerings:

	urllib3: $0 this month
	aspidites: $0 this month

Checking their GTK+ project offerings:

	Elementary: $302 last month
	XFCE: $118 last month
	Antergos: $21 this month
	FeedReader: $2 this month
	GNOME: $0 this month
	Switchboard: $0 this month
	Midori Browser: $0 this month
	Scratch: $0 this month
	Pantheon Photos: $0 this month
	Maya: $0 this month
	Slingshot: $0 this month
	Noise: $0 this month
	Granite: $0 this month
	WingPanel: $0 this month
	Numix: $0 this month
	Pragha Music Player: $0 this month
	Ozon OS: $0 this month
	Solus-project: $0 this month

... So, yeah.  I'm thinking this is not a credible source for
fundraising.  Arduino and GNOME, projects with *far* greater visibility,
get $0 a month from Bountysource.  I find it hard to believe we'd do
much better.

I think this is something best avoided.
