Scott L. Burson's BountyOSS

Here's an interesting announcement from Scott L. Burson on comp.lang.lisp:

From: Scott L. Burson <Scott@ergy.com>
Subject: ANNOUNCE: BountyOSS, an open-source crowdfunding site
Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp
Date: Mon, 9 Jul 2012 03:01:39 +0000 (UTC)

Hi c.l.l,

I am pleased to announce the recent opening of my open-source crowdfunding site, BountyOSS.

I think the site explains itself pretty well, so I'll just give you the link: https://bountyoss.com/

It's built with Weblocks, the Common Lisp Web framework written by Slava Akhmechet, running on SBCL. It also uses CLSQL talking to PostgreSQL, Hunchentoot, and a bunch of other CL libraries.

As my way of giving back to the Common Lisp community, I am waiving BountyOSS's 5% commission on all bounties for work on Open Source Common Lisp implementations, libraries, and developer tools.(*) Additionally, for work on projects used by the BountyOSS site itself, I will _contribute_ an additional 3.5% to each bounty (this will cover the WePay credit card fees). These include SBCL, Quicklisp, and the Quicklisp-loadable systems listed at the end of this post. These two offers are good until midnight UTC of 1 January 2014.

And finally, for a few projects, I will match bounties (i.e., contribute an amount equal to the bounty) up to the following (cumulative) limits: SBCL, $500; Quicklisp, $200; Weblocks, $100; Hunchentoot, $100; CLSQL, $100. (I may add to this list later.)

So -- have a look! And let me know what you think of the site.

-- Scott

(*) I reserve the right to decide exactly what qualifies, but my intent is to include anything that is useful for CL development.
