Hi, this is my first post!

I am developing in my spare time a bug tracker that supports bitcoins.

Every bug gets an associated newly created bitcoin address. People interested on getting the bug fixed can put money on this address.

When the project administrator accepts that a bug is fixed he transfers all the money from the account to the address provided by the one who posted the fix.

I have more ideas to implement on it, but i want to keep it simple, session-free and secure.

All bitcoin related operations are done by an agent connected using websockets. The wallet is stored in the agent device which can run under a firewall with restricted networking.

All monetary operations are queried to the administrator, which owns the wallet.

Someone in IRC proposed that those transfers should be done internally by the platform in order to reduce the number of transfers and fees.

Another criticism I got is that opensource projects can get corrupted by the use of money for fixing bugs. Meaning that bugs will be fixed for interest and not for making the software better.

What do you think?

Here's a demo site: http://bugcoin.nodester.com
And the source: http://github.com/radare/bugcoin

Enjoy!

Nicely done!

It actually has some commonality with my own upcoming open source project - so will be forcing me to get cracking even faster on it.  Shocked

Another criticism I got is that opensource projects can get corrupted by the use of money for fixing bugs. Meaning that bugs will be fixed for interest and not for making the software better.

What do you think?

I believe that such approaches will give the end users a lot more say in what gets done. Provided that the project itself is still "managed" I don't see anything wrong in this but I think you will be up against a bit of "culture shock" from the developers (as an example I have already tried offering 20 BTC to try and get a small feature added to Bitcoin itself with so far not even a single response).


Cheers,

Ian.

Unfortunatelly the website is off.

However, the idea looks awesome for me.

I think it can be used to manage bugs on opensource projects.

So, when the website is on again, tell us.

Cheers,
