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!
This year we're thinking about getting everyone in the MooTools community together, in one place, for a weekend to meet up, chat, discuss, and have an all-around good time. That's right, we're trying to plan a MooTools Conference!
But before we can do that, we need your help. We've set up a form so we can gauge interest in a MooTools Conference. All you need to do is take a minute and answer the questions.
We'll keep the form up until next week, but make sure you answer quickly so we can start planning this awesome Official MooTools Gathering (or OMG--which might or might not be the name of the conference).
