The time to nominate the next hacker charity donation with the hope of achieving donation acceptance is NOW!

We got 618 BTC leftover from the CCC operation.

I put down 2 BTC to whatever non-religious not previously accepting bitcoins as donation charity gets elected. Smiley

How about some solid piece of software that Linux needs desperately.

GIMP has 2 guys working on it but they're making a big push now for features- single window interface + lots of other new things. They could really use the cash. (I already donated some BTC to them)

GIMP sounds good. Or do the EFF again, to avoid spreading the donations too thin.

GIMP's product vision is that GIMP is or will become a free software high-end graphics application for the editing and creation of original images, icons, graphical elements of web pages and art for user interface elements.

new interface,


and the old style,


If they had more devs then they could work on these features everyone keeps complaining about. Kind of confusing how one of the most important free software projects has so few developers. Unlike Blender which has dozens. These are core-multimedia functionality on Linux!! They're an important pillar that needs fixing.

GIMP and FSF (half each). FSF would be helpful to the cause. GIMP need to fix their interface.

Cool, if you already donated then it shouldn't be too hard to get them to put a bitcoin address on their donations page.

Or do the EFF again, to avoid spreading the donations too thin.

I thought the purpose of these charities was to make the targets officially accept bitcoin donations on their site to increase our exposure, rather than actually trying to help them in a meaningful way. I wouldn't donate this pot to the EFF for this reason and because the amount is probably negligible to them anyway. Also I checked their address and it looks like it's still receiving bitcoins regularly, so the risk that they stop accepting our donations should be low.

I personally would like to donate to the DosBOX project. I use it a lot and donated a few times using Paypal.

I think GIMP is the winner here.
