Is there a bounty system? - ghee22

For Myth, I assume you mean; not the site itself? Not formally, that I'm aware of. --Baylink 16:43, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
Yes, for Myth. I think it's a great way to get MythTV out to the motto, a program for developers by developers and onto a program for sophisticated users by investors. --Ghee22 10:22, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
There was a bounty system, run separately as the LXM Suite and launched last year. AFAIK it didn't attract any real user money and their website is now dead. A couple of months back a $1000 bounty was offered on the Dev mailing list and was collected. However the real problem with a bounty system is that it wastes a lot of developer time and places greater pressure on them. They compete against each other, rather than working in harmony. Personally I would rather complete work in my own time, rather than race someone to the money and potentially throw that code away if I 'lost' -- GBee
