should i search for money, for people for developing? what can i do?
According to my experience finding people who do some work for money
is not really successful.
It depends a lot on how it is done, but it can create problems in a

Yes, I agree here. The things you mentioned is (except debian-installer)
not about implementing technical details. I had the impression that
Gerhard was asking about paying for working down a list of missing features.
If it is an amount of money to pay for a information scientist a year than
you can hire somebody. But I don't think that Gerhard was talking about
a sum of this dimension. Sponsoring travel expenses for a developer gathering
and asking to do the sponsee to do a defined task would be a more reasonable
But considering the fact that Gerhard is working as an administrator in
schools I somehow have the feeling that finding a student who becomes
involved might be a reasonable concept (and sponsoring his travel to a
gathering to get really involved) seems like a realistic approach.
