I cannot afford at the moment to put myself in working at the Qt code, so often I think to buy a commercial license only to contribute in some way to development even if I don’t need it. But I cannot afford it too.

I was very happy to donate some money to help the development of Qt Multimedia. And maybe, with a survey it would be possible to know which module will get more contribution to its development via donation.

While it sounds sympathetic, I have yet to see such donation/bounty 
based systems really work. They've popped up for other projects in the 
past, but the ones I have seen have not yielded much. And nobody ever 
claimed the bounties I have offered. I'd be afraid it takes more 
resources to setup and maintain than it would yield in terms of donations.
