I'm asking since I put a 5000 Euro bounty out on the ML for fixing AVCHD decoding a year and a half ago with mixed results (https://roundup.mplayerhq.hu/roundup/ffmpeg/issue475). Someone started working on it, lost interest and it was fixed eventually by someone who didn't know about the bounty eight and a half months later. I just thought if this was brokered it would work a bit better but of course that kind of administration is probably not what anyone of the developers wants to dive into, I guess (e.g. the foundation keeps a part of the bounty and for that sees to it that the person volunteering really does the job and if not assign it to someone else or something like that).

i think we could add a tag to the roundup like 'bounty' and then link
to it or embed the list of 'bounty' bugs on ffmpeg.org for more
