My laptop died the same day a friend of mine gave me a Raspberry Pi, so it looks like Raspbian will be my main OS for a few months at least, and I’m so sad that I can’t use Delta.chat, because I’ve kind of become dependant on it (or should I say addicted to it?). I really can’t go back to Thunderbird or Geary now that I’ve had a taste of Delta.chat’s slick UI.
I saw that I’m not the only one who would be glad to see Delta.chat ported to ARM/Raspberry, but I have neither the skill nor the time to try it myself, so I was wondering for how much someone would be willing to do it.
I won’t finance the whole thing myself, but I’m testing the water here to see if:
- someone is willing to do it
- for how much
- how many people are willing to crowdfund this feature, and how much can we raise collectively to finance this
Personally, I’m willing to give around ~20€, but this amount could raise a bit if I can’t take the pain of not having Delta.chat on my present desktop.
Plus, I’m working on a Raspberry project with a friend, trying to give the internet back to the people, and we would really like to install Delta.chat at the same time as IPFS and other cool stuff.
First time creating a feature bounty, so any advice on how to do this is welcome. How should we proceed? Kickstarter? OpenCollective? Bountysource?
