Hello,

here is one thing I would like to see somewhere (perhaps a dedicated sections here on this forum?):

People would offer work for bitcoins. I would imagine:


I will pay 1 BTC for improving mupdf (a favourite pdf viewer of mine), so that it can:
- print current pdf (would show a command in a box like currently search is displayed, and will supply reasonable default, for example lp, and allows me to alter it)
- save current pdf to a file (would show a prompt for path, which will allow expansion of ~ to user's home)

Price is negotiable. Conditions: patch accepted by upstream.


(this is actually real feature request: from me http://bugs.ghostscript.com/show_bug.cgi?id=691330#c33 )

People would bid (not unlike the forum modification request for bitcointalk), also people may want to offer more bitcoins if they  would use this feature.

What do you think? I've seen a lot of offers like "I'm looking for work", but I think the approach I'm suggesting is better for both sides. I haven't found anything like what I'm suggesting (or it was not taken seriously)

The offer above is real, feel free to contact me for more details. I have some more ideas that I'm willing to sponsor in this way (I like to think about it as the GPUs I own do some work for me, since I don't have the time to do it all by myself).

I think your bid is a little low. I haven't looked into how much time that would take, but if it is only worth 1BTC it would have to be less than an hour to be at minimum wage levels.

You can post bounty campaigns in the Project Development subforum or the Services section in the Marketplace subforum I just recently patched the bitcoin client for someone for 5 BTC in the project development subforum

It's possible, that's why the price should be negotiable and someone can come and say "Hey, I'll do it for 5BTC". On the other hand, some student may come and do it in his free time school project (and you may get credits, grades or whatever you university works on) and on top of it get paid.

I'd think this is work for half an hour, if you know where to look. I would do it myself, but it's written in xlib and therefore bit hard for someone who has no experience with it (like me). It may be much easier for someone who's actually familiar with it.

Thanks for the tip. I'll look into project development, I was under the impression it is only for bitcoin related projects (like client, online services etc.). The Marketplace/Services is a mess. There is all kind of (pseudo)services, ofter not explained well.

Does anybody know of a site for BTC freelancer bid/offers ? That would be better than a subforum I guess.
