With Geeklog 1.4.1[*1] finally out, it's time to make plans for the next release. At which point we can't help realize (again), that our list of open feature requests[*2] is embarrassingly long. So it's about time we do something about it.
Fortunately, we just had an offer to support Geeklog development which lets us try out something new (for us at least): Bounties[*3] .
The idea is that we identify tasks that probably wouldn't get implemented otherwise and add some incentive to have someone jump in and implement them. In other words, contributors are getting a chance to get paid for their contribution to Geeklog (not much, but still ...).
Our friendly new sponsor, AOE media GmbH[*4] , has commited to a monthly donation for the duration this year. So now we need your help in identifying the things that you would like to see implemented. Please keep in mind that we're not looking for new ideas at this point, but that we want to reduce our backlog of feature requests.
We'd like to have that discussion in the forums mostly, so if you have any general questions or issues with the bounty system, please use this thread[*5] . To chip in your favorite feature request, please use this thread[*6] .
Once we've got an overview over the most-wanted tasks, we will probably set up a poll to figure out the exact order (keep in mind that we only have limited financial resources).
We're awaiting your feedback!
