Should we list Patreon funding pages in d/u/metadata?




Hello,

at times I now find pointers to Patron (https://www.patreon.com),  Flattr (https://flattr.com/) et al. (https://alternativeto.net/software/patreon/)  in the READMEs of a software I am about to package. Is this something that should be referenced in debian/upstream/metadata? Anything speaking against it?

The place this should go to IMHO is d/u/metadata.  Something like:

Donations:
 - Name: Patreon
    Entry: ImGui

These kind of requests are not too frequent, yet. I hence expect this to be a bit of a side-issue for everyone. Anyway - I think it is a nice gesture. And upstream should appreciate this extra effort to help them.

Best,

Steffen
