Don't have a VPS for that around that I can use right now. Can someone please host this.

It's a site where you propose features for Bitcoin and donate. Once the feature is completed & confirmed, then it goes to the dev who wrote that feature.

It's an experiment into how future free software development could work.

Sounds like you could spin it off as kickstarter clone, except with bitcoin.

Thank you! That's great.

Obviously the site is very basic for now. I hacked it up as an experiment. If it grows then I'll add features later on. See what happens.

Like imagine a bug tracker, but where people can donate to prioritise bugs.

ATM the front page heuristic is to select the top 10 most funded open tickets so far and the 5 newest ones (mixed together).

The kickstarter thing sounds nice, but not my goal here. I want to see free software projects gain funding. Money goes really far in free software and even the smallest amounts will lead to a huge quality increase for everyone.

Send me a PM with your site idea/intentions. There may be some room at my inn.

I run a fairly powerful (and under used) dedicated server that I use to host my own personal projects.

I even have a few hundred domain names lying around we could maybe attach it to.

It's on my laptop because I don't have a permanent host yet.

This is awesome, but can it be used to fund non-bitcoin projects? Did you see my post here: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4435.0

Maybe? Firstly I want to setup a dev oriented version for Bitcoin project development (think bug tracker where bugs have bounties attached)... Then once that's hosted, lets make another one for anything else?

Kind of just like lets see where this goes. I haven't got hosting yet FWIW. Still looking.

That would be an excellent idea for a bitcoin-based service. I've been thinking about making something like that myself.

Does the site manage a wallet? Suppose two people come up with a bug fix, who gets the bounty? Who distributes the funds?

I see the vision, but not a clear mission statement. People are more likely to donate if there is some concrete set of goals. Here is my attempt at a mission statement:
Quote
I, genjix, run this website to facilitate the development of free open source software. I shall reward bounties to those who develop the most wanted and needed new features as well as bug fixes. I choose to focus my attention on the Bitcoin project.

Before using it for Bitcoin, why not use it for itself? Let other developers help you build your vision. As soon as your project is old enough to walk on its own two legs, it could be used for anybody's vision or project. Then, you just use it for Bitcoin and focus on that if that is your passion.

Awesome idea.

BRAVO! I was just thinking how cool it would be to have a service like fundry or kickstarter with bitcoins, and *BAM*, somebody has already started working on it!

Note that you could use your site to fund its own development, btw  Cheesy

This is a great idea, and I'm posting mainly to make sure I'm able to keep track of this thread since the forum subscriptions don't work.

Please keep us up to date, and I'd be willing to help fund development of this idea.

Everyone really likes the idea of kickstarter clone for bitcoin.

Please, do not donate a single Bitcoin until the security issues are resolved.

I will give you a clue on what to fix first, SQL Injections.
If you need help contact me. I can help you fix this. :-)

EDIT: Also, all bounties ask for the same address. Tongue

Code:
            UPDATE proposals
            SET
                shortdes='\'',
                info='\''
            WHERE pid='7' AND ownid='7';

Don't worry. Those problems are already fixed. It's actually using a utility library from another project,

http://gitorious.org/intersango/master/trees/master

When I upload it, I'll migrate the new library over.

(The problem FYI was that in util.php cleanup_string applies a regex. Originally it was using ereg_replace but that's deprecated. The newer preg_replace requires / / on both sides of the search string.)

I'll keep you posted once everything's done so you can check  Grin For now, I'm still waiting on the VPS from mtux.
