Still, that's more than the $0/hr for most of the D contributions

Aye, but it doesn't push you over the line from "I'd like to do this but
am too busy with other work" or "meh i don't care enough" to actually
Depends how well one's day job is going ;) And I do think it *can* be
enough to tip the scales if someone is tempted but not entirely comitted
- the final straw to say "Ok, you know what, I think I *will* take a
shot at that after all".
But I think you may be right that it isn't exactly going to get a bunch
of people clamoring over "Ooooh!! I'm gonna go fix that one!!" As far as
what *would* to that though, I really don't know (I mean, beyond
obviously silly answers like "Three million!").
FWIW, I think there *are* dangers in going too high with the bounties
(and I can't believe I just said that ;) ). Don't want to end up with
contention over who gets a bounty (esp if people had already made
significant contributions towards something, and then a bounty gets
posted and someone else swoops in for the last little bit). Also don't
want to discourage people from bothering with non-bounty issues.
