In my very humble opinion, donating will only cause things to continue as they are now: We get no bug fixes, they keep the addon listed as active for the donation windfall on expansion day and we get a band-aid over Burning Crusade's version of Carbonite. Look at the lack of content updates and bug fixes for Cata. Check the forums for people who have donated over a month ago and the devs can't even be bothered to give them access to the donator's forum. Also check Rythal's contributions to this thread in which he explains how far removed the code is from the current game's needs. The addon authors didn't bother using the beta to try to get us a working addon for patch. They will fix only what's broken once enough people have donated. Then they'll drop it again.

Don't reward the addon authors for their desire to keep you donating with nothing to return for it just because you want carbonite to work in MoP. Find someone that is actually working toward giving you something and reward them. If that's Rythal and he gets permission to release it, give him your money. If it's this guy, then give him your money. Don't give money to people that are happy to take it in return for ignoring you, not doing a single thing to the addon in an expansion except for pushing out the out-of-date nag window and can't be bothered to code anything until it's already broken beyond use.
