The concept is similar to bountysource, but it is better to have all development related activities on the Foundation website. This was decided in the last foundation call.
Also, UI is cleaner (I think)
This is still the first version, feedback is appreciated. Also, the Bounty Goal can be changed at any time.
Allow developer to bid and timeline on the bounty and show the highest or every bidders price. This is to show potential backers roughly how much the bounty would cost. (Having this problem with Bountysource too)
Enable developers to claim and backers to pay out.
Bounty Status - Collecting, In Development, Completed, Claimed, Paid Out
can you post the github repo for the bounty system please @netchampfaris ? I can’t find it here.
at present it is required to login to erpnext.org in order to create a bounty (aka you have to be a member of the foundation) - what’s the benefit of limitating the potential userbase in such a way? I personally think the Foundation is meant to be a go-to point for the ERPNext community as a whole rather then a limited to interact between it’s members.
This is quite limited. There are a lot of good questions in the sample FAQ, and it’d be good if the same are answered.
Some key questions:
As a backer, when am i charged?
As a developer, what is the process for collecting a bounty? How will the bounty be paid out? What are the fees?
Also, it may be good to have an advocate look into the setup, financials and terms of this system. If my understanding is correct, with the current setup, EOSSF is completely liable for any claims/allegations in this area, so it’s something to be careful about.
Maybe all current bounties should be pinned to the top of this forum until completed and paid? This will provide another alert (in addition to the foundation website) for ERPNext solution providers that may wish to contribute.
