Funding: what can we learn from other projects

The last year has seen some alternative models of funding development; the largest and most radical one being the Plone Intranet consortium. In Plone's history we've had some attempts like developing GetPaid, with varying results. In this talk, annex discussion, I want to look at how some other projects are tackling the problem where many organisations have smaller amounts available, especially towards the end of the year, yet each individual organisation does not have enough to have a feature fully developed. The CiviCRM community, for instance, uses their "Make It Happen" campaigns to relative success. What would possible models be, and how could this be run so that it runs not contrary, but complimentary, to the PLIP/Frameworkteam model? This is not a finished proposal, audience brainpower and experience is explicitly invited.
