My reading of that is that it *was* closing down as a (semi) failed
business, but that CanYa are now investing in it. I was slightly surprised
seeing the state of their website before posting, having looked a few
Anyway, the question was more about that kind of developer funding - people
posting bounties against specific bugs / feature requests. I'm just
wondering how much integration - pointing people at a global list, direct
links in issue queues, etc. can be done without falling foul of ASF
policies. Not that it's a model we'd necessarily want to encourage anyway.
Doesn't look like Bountysource has been used much by Apache projects,
although a few linked to Cassandra by the look of it.
