MooTools on Bountysource

Written By Arian Stolwijk, on Thursday, May 30th 2013, 2:11pm

Today we enabled Bountysource for MooTools Core and MooTools More. Bountysource is a funding platform for Open Source projects like MooTools.

It works as follows: there is an issue on GitHub. You, or anyone else, can create a bounty to back the issue. Then some developer (either a MooTools Team Member or some other contributor) fixes the issue. Once it gets merged and he or she can collect the bounty!

We think this could help to prioritize issues and to increase community contributions. After all, who doesn’t like to get some pocket money to buy a beer or MooTools t-shirt!

    Funny that this was (part of) the content of an April’s Fool joke a few years ago: http://mootools.net/blog/2010/04/01/ ;)

    Of course you don’t have to pay for anything ;) It’s a little experiment to see if it would encourage people to contribute.
