Re: KickStarter for Debian packages - crowdfunding/donations for development

What happens with the money should be decided by the maintainers of the
package. Before you'll see "flocking", there will have been such a
decision already (otherwise there's no money and thus no "flocking").
Given that, I can see only a few possible outcomes:
- The (main/sole) maintainer decides to egoistically take all the money
for themselves. They alienate all other maintainers, and nobody ever
wants to work with them anymore.
Yeah, that could happen with or without money involved.
The package suffers, until it is hijacked or taken away by decree of
the TC or similar.
Or rather s/, until.*/ forever/. I'm talking from experience here.
