I was looking at the foundation forum, and was wondering that if we wanted to get Blender 2.26 or whatever, would we have to pay?
Since Blender is coming back, is the new Blender project dead?
to start, maybe the 50eu fee would enable you to get them (before the 100k is raised). eventually they too would become free.
come to think of it, this could be anm interesting model for development… take a program, license it out proprietarily for a while to reach a certain monetary target, and promise that when the target is reached it will be GPLed and the contributers will get like a plaque or personalized blender(appliance) or something…
