I wrote this before I found out about bounty source, so nevermind.

Open Source Bounties

Open Source Bounties is a site where users can post open-source software programming tasks and offer money for their completion. It differs from outsourcing sites like freelancer.com in that it would be based on crowd funding where multiple people add to the the bounty for a particular project (being open source, projects may benefit many people). It would be a bit like Kickstarter except that anyone could complete a project and claim the bounty rather than only the project poster.

Feature ideas

  • Integration with github where it is possible to post $5.00$ on an issue the way one might post :thumbsup:, and have it automatically create a bounty from your account.
