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).
