Wondering what percentage of the donations the author forwarded to the library maintainers and authors that his product relies on..

10% sound fair? Split it 20 ways for each lib. I'm sure they'd all enjoy their 47 cents.

10% Sounds low. I can't judge for the product in question but for my programs, they are usually tiny blips standing on the shoulder of giants (libraries). So far i have never ask for money, if i'd do so i maybe would need to pass on 80% to not feel bad about it..

Not sure if you are cynical of sincere, either way, if the library devs get 47 cent from every donation driven program that relies on them, this could add up to some nice sum.

You're telling someone who saw years of work amount to only $96 that they only deserve 20% of that?

No i am not saying this. I am saying that: "I can't judge for the product in question "..
