This is really cool. I look forwarding to support people in the Django community who make invaluable apps through this.

I would prefer if I could reward people for specific repos, though. Otherwise people, myself included, will probably be clueless why I am receiving money, and as a result it won't create an incentive to improve a particular product.

The text could read.

    Hey, I just met you,
    And this is crazy,
    But here's my money,
    So keep working on django-registration maybe.

I like the fact that the donations are per individual, rather than per project. It gives the recipients the freedom to explore other opportunities, rather than tying them down to their one popular project.

I just want it there as an optional addition. People should totally be able to donate to the general GitHub account.
