Since that Bitquux didn't responded to my PM nor did he release the source code...I am going to pledge 20 BTC for a competitor to that Mr. DontReleaseCode because "I am not ready" BS.

Same as last time, except I want to see a public repository of the programmer's project. No bullshit. It can be GPL or MIT, or what not license that satisfies[edit] OSI requirement. I like copyfree licenses the best, however. It should be licensed under the WTFPL.

It should do[update requirement]:

1. Standalone client, lightweight.

Pledgers:

1. Kiba - 20 BTC

Total: 20 BTC.

P.S.

I realized my mistake is that I didn't say it should be open source in the last bounty. Nonetheless, I still make the mistake of not demanding a public repository for other bounties.

So for bounties that require open source project, I am going to demand a public repository and the explict license above.

What is the purpose of the program ?

Because if it is what I think it is, I guess we could solve the problem in a completly different way than with a chrome extension.

Basically, a client built within chrome.

Hum...  Have you considered using privoxy in conjonction with a tiny web server such as thttpd ?

This would work with any browser, not just chrome.

Privoxy would use regular expression to detect bitcoin addresses in a webpage, and it would modify the webpage on-th-fly, in order to add a "pay" button.  This pay button would redirect to a local CGI form that would call bitcoind in a bash-script.

I am interested in making it easier for people to use bitcoin.

That mean simplying the process as much as possible.

Since bitquux finally responded to my inquiry and make available his work, we can now build on what he already had done.

Interesting use of the WTFPL

Also any one know if there is a Firefox version of this or a bounty for it? I might try my luck now that the source is out.

13NuAQaChtoTgvX8J68Zjy4AUR6hhugpXM Donations for anything and everything.

I taken the liberty of making it public access.

If you want commit access, feel free to ask me. Otherwise, you can simply fork and do your own thing.

As for bounty, I guess everybody will do a peer review & vote as to who deserve the most. You will need to have at least 10 commits to be able to vote. Remember, the pledgers set the condition for release of bitcoin. So you can't just do nothing and expect to get something.

I'll be taking over the maintenance-ship of this project. My offer still stand, but if the task get completed by me, I simply move the bounty to somewhere else.

Otherwise, I will be accepting donation once I got all the other business taken care of.

Here's what I am working on for the next version:

A basic accounting tab so you can get a pretty good overview on your income versus expense.

Today did not yield very good result since I don't know how to create a tab yet.
