BountySource failed for a reason, if I told you the reason, you'd just argue
I think you might be over-complicating things a bit, look at your competitor,
intellij, they're winning because they're embracing capitalism and prosperity.
They use licenses to profit and it's WORKING! Simple as that. Follow the policy
and die or embrace capitalism and stick around. Truth hurts.

Bountysource is closing down because it was a failed business, it's been

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 months ago.
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.
