Luzpaz seems to do a lot of organising? Is organising essential? Why not an extra developer on a patron. Fixed term and then the community vote on extension, hopefully coming up with next round of funding.
Organization is essential. There are many things which are loosely organized and work okay, like bug reports, packaging, forum clean-up, etc., but once you start accepting thousands of dollars, euros, francs, etc., then people will want to see some concrete results. What happens if after a year a particular feature you wanted is not included? How do we measure success? We have to have realistic expectations and goals as well, no programmer is an expert in everything. They may need significant time to learn the codebase.
If you can get a developer to dedicate fully to this, then go ahead, start a fundraiser. As I said, somebody has to be interested enough, with enough time and money to kickstart and manage this.
