So I'll be deleting the page I created and tagging apps unmaintained
instead... but are you suggesting that a page under /wiki would still
be a good idea? Maybe containing some more detailed explanations than
the "unmaintained" page, like "Kluppe is great but it would greatly
benefit from basic midi support"?
Such a thing could potentially get complicated: shouldn't bugs and
feature requests not pertain the wiki, but the project's pages/authors?

Anyhow, I think the unmaintained page is allready a good resource, I
just think it should be more advertised.

As a more general question to the community, what do you think about
setting up a system where users can donate money for a certain future
to be added to a software (and the devs that do the work get the money)?
The ardour project uses this thing right?
It would be great if such a system could be implemented in a central
place like, that way (and with this we get [almost] back
on topic) one could donate money for a dead/unmaintained project to be
resurrected, whereas as it is now I wouldn't know where to donate
money to have say spiral synth modular add a certain future. I think it
would be a nice thing for the community.

What are the pros and cons of such a system?
