We could look into bountysource as the infrastructure/platform. It
might make it easier for users. They take a 10% cut upon withdrawl of
awarded funds. They also have a "fundraiser" feature, but I didn't
really read much about that.

I signed up the project a while ago just to take a look, and one of the
employees contacted me several times via IRC so see if I had any
questions or needed help, but my lazignorance ultimately prevailed and
I didn't really do anything with it.

Here's the project page:

It automatically lists each bug report.

I have no experience using bountysource as a user or developer. Does
anyone have any experience with this?
