Prior Art and Discussion

In late 2008, a founder of FossFactory pitched Collective funding, design and development of Drupal projects to the Marketing of Drupal group on g.d.o. Very much what we are trying to do here. And nothing happened. One significant difference is that they were a for-profit venture. Another difference that shouldn't matter, but we are a tad insular: their site is not Drupal. (It is open sourced and PHP.) The comments to the thread make further points.

The discussion at Module "Black-Hole" revival, especially by dahacouk and myself, predates this and presents clearly the needs we are trying to address.

And the most recent, Supporting Sponsorship for Drupal Contribution, posted in the Prairie Initiative group.
