I think most people have the impression that homebrew should always be free, but is this really the case? We all know that homebrew developers make homebrew in their spare time and some of them accept donations for development support. Common people often bitch about the slow progress of development and features, that won't be added. They should either make things themselves or be patient. This way, the potential of homebrew is limited and that is truly a sad thing. The solution to this might be paying homebrew developers. We are paying licensed developers for their games, so why can't we pay homebrew developers for their homebrew? I personally see no problem with it. In fact, people are already selling their homebrew in the phone scene, so why not in the Wii and DS scene? A lot of homebrews are GPL, but that's not an issue since the GPL explicitly allows people to sell GPL licensed files. With that said, how about an official request thread or a forum, where people can request homebrew and additional features to existend homebrew? This should perhaps work this way: Lets say I want feature X to homebrew Y. A developer accepts the request and wants 50 bucks in exchange. He/she sets up a chipin widget where people can donate some money in and when the amount is complete, development starts. I believe that this would result in a lot more exciting homebrew. Your thoughts?
