Exciting news for those of you who want to help Nightingale development with a little bit of money: we are officially using Bountysource for bounties on bugs now. Bountysource is an open source project, which allows users to put money on a bug or feature request – wether it’s already in the issues tracker or not. And it makes it easy for developers to find bugs to work on to get a little bit of money. and it’s perfect for us: we don’t have to handle money in the whole process. To give a bounty on an existing issue, just go to https://www.bountysource.com/trackers/230233-nightingale-media-player-nightingale-hacking and select the issue you want to speed up from the list.
By putting a bounty on a bug, you make it more likely to get another developer, who is not currently wokring on Nightingale to fix a bug. We from the team will fix bugs with and without bounties equally, just dependent on our plans and personal preferences. So no worries if you don’t have the money to boost an issue.
We will add the “bounty” tag to all issues with bounties. If you start working on an issue with the tag, be sure to got to Bountysource and click the “Start Work” button.
For more information on how Bountysource works, visit their FAQ. Please hang on if you want to donate directly to the project. We are still looking into how to handle money the best.
