Hey Everyone,

We're wondering if members of our great community would be interested participating in a "Bounty Program"?

A "Bounty" is some sort of "prize" which is offered in exchange for the completion of some predefined task. So, the bounty might be "Solve Bug LET-#### for $x" or "Document Blah for Tee-Shirt", etc.

If you're still not sure what a "Bounty Program" is, there is a great example on WikiPedia's Bounty board.

Anyway, such a program is a type of symbiotic relationship between an open source project and it's community. It's a win-win scenario for everyone. Liferay Portal is a very large application and there are many areas were we could use your help to implement, fix, test, and/or document features.

Anyway, we're not sure what types of bounties you would all be interested in seeing: t-shirts? hats? cash? gift certs? all of the above?

Your feedback here is the key, so please pipe in and let us know if this interests you.

Thanks for your time,

Ray

I think this is a good idea. Even if everyone is not able to sufficiently contribute to the bug fixing because lack of expertise in the understanding of existing class behavior/code flow - at least - we can contribute in testing/document features - prior to the release of the versions.

Quality, needs to be maintained across the releases - and definitely looks to be challenging for the liferay core team going by the number of issues opened everyday on the JIRA.

Regards,
Shivani.

One of the areas where I think you could get some significant traction would be for allowing a dedicated testing instance of Liferay built off of the latest branch. This would let the hardcore users test new functionality as it's being developed, assist with documentation, etc. I think that most all of us would gladly contribute time to something like this. If you gave me a place to test the latest code without having to re-work my development system *and* threw a hat my way, man, life couldn't get much better.

Awesome idea... I think money would be appropriate just for serious bugs/problems and/or new features ... BTW you could also put up a page for bounty proposals ... Some individuals or companies might be interested in getting a new feature so they might help sponsor a bounty...

T-shirts and other merchandise could be given out for different other activities: you could organize online marathons for documentation or translating and give everybody something for participating ... You could also give out stuff based on activity on the forum and the wiki ...

Yeah, I agree 110% with Josh - a test instance say every night, that is auto built/deployed/unit-tested in a 'clean' environment. It's possible then, that suites of automation could be written (HttpUnit/HtmlUnit) to try to build up acceptance tests. Others could also see what new features were being worked on, test out existing features, etc. Could be that this baseline system is used to determine when a release is 'ready'?

Yes, it does (we even used it at some point), but we were talking about bounty program, so as a bounty Liferay could have provided some support - let's say some limited time support or limited number of issues.

- this is bad... "$10 USD an article, to a max of 2"...

Support via Forums as a bounty... already provided? Please, add some categories to forums. For instance, Performance Tuning, External Systems / Email, and etc...

You can always send t-shirts to active forum participants as a bounty emoticon

Here is another emoticon candidate, please share your thoughts:
- link on your home page to contributor's home page (if it is non-profit?), with simple thank you note.

Quite a few have discussed this "bounty" idea for getting Liferay code developed quickly and professionally.

If someone who knows the Liferay project and players much better than I do (I've only been here a few days), well here's a Bounty management "crowd-funding" tool that you could get started with right now, and implement a program for Liferay.

http://www.bountyup.com/index.php

I have looked around for similar sites, and this seems to be the one getting some use. Others, like BountySource seem moribund. It's a tricky idea, but seems it can work. Just needs someone to try.

If anyone knows of better, more software oriented bounty management sites, please post them here.

That's not a bad idea as well. I was kicking around the idea of giving out t-shirts if a particular user exceeds a x amount of posts on the forum. This could help facilitate the growth of "community gurus".

Hi Matte,

If you or someone else on the community can explicitly define the success metrics of the bounty (exactly what the individual closing the Bounty needs to accomplish) then I can post it on software.bountyup.com which is BountyUp's meta site for software bounties. Recently Flock put some opensource bounties on there as well.

I have seen some forums where the original poster determines whether a reply actually solved their issue and awards points. This (if tied to a reward scheme) would help move the determination from the liferay staff to the user community. Reward Points could then be swapped for merchandise. Obviously anything that you set up can be abused so there will need to be some careful control points. How to measure wiki contributions for documentation would be harder however I am sure that there is a way.

I also think such a program would be useful in terms of a developer to developer program... like I need a theme/portlet and be willing to pay 500 whatever kind of (virtual or real) currency. Thinking not only in terms of direct improvements for liferay but also in terms of a market place... this would be great! Maybe I should develop such a portlet and commit it ; )
