Hi all

I was thinking about if we should put an
automatic 50 USD bounty on every bug thats open since more than
12 month on trac, and limited to the first 20 claims so its limited
to 1000 USD max expenses for us (for now)
(also limited to real unique bugs of course)

The intend would be two fold, first to get some old bugs fixed, and
2nd to give a tiny bit back to thouse who do fix bugs

One big question is, can SPI donations be used for this ?
anyone knows if other projects used SPI for something similar ?

Comments, Suggestions, Death threads welcome!

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give
it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For
even the very wise cannot see all ends. -- Gandalf
