Well, if you think you can raise that amount,
think developers will want to work for that amount...
best of luck with
We in GNOME are spread too thin right now, and +10 paid
developers would be a huge help.
OSTree seems relatively mature, but isn't really being used on the
desktop, except by Endless; not sure that should be a priority.
is important; it needs help in the sandboxing department, and work on
porting existing GNOME apps to xdg-app, but this is a priority for Red
Hat so not sure it should be for Autonomia.
GNOME Shell has a huge
Bugzilla queue, but I don't normally notice bugs and we've
intentionally stopped with the UI changes as the design has matured, so
not sure that should be a priority.
GTK+ already has lots of
experienced developers and doesn't need more help.
Designers are really
important, but the ones we already have are generating top-notch
designs faster than we can implement, so I wouldn't invest there.
Brazilian Portuguese has 98% translation coverage of GNOME 3.18 and 96%
of GNOME 3.20; you could close the gap, but probably that won't be a
I would focus more effort on the GNOME core apps and less on the other
areas. Music and Web from your list could use one dedicated developer
apiece, for example, and I have a sizable list of other promising apps
that could as well: Chat and News immediately spring to mind. I think
right now our apps story is where we're weakest; since most of the apps
are not so important for enterprise customers, Red Hat doesn't seem to
care about them as much.
Of course, you were very helpful. :)
Wishing you the best with Autonomia,
