We did have that, but IMHO failed. To my surprise there were more offers
for bounties (even free GTA04 boards) than developers willing to do
something. Maybe a bounty of 50/100 bucks doesn't attract anyone these
days? Therefore, we now start the other way round. Find people first
who generally want to work for the projects. This is what the developer
network is for.

So if you know anyone who wants to do software (or maybe
some hardware) development, please invite them subscribe to
the developer-network list. So that we can contact them directly
when we need them (sending an e-mail through a list is better
than just posting on a wiki and waiting for people to walk by).

And they can say what the conditions are, that they really commit
themselves to do something. This all has the positive side-effect
that we get more developers from outside interested in this community.
