Hello from FreedomSponsors

Hi all

I'd like to introduce FreedomSponsors to this list.

FS is a website I made where people can place small money bounties for
open issues for
any other open issue tracker)

So far it's only got a few offers - but it's slowly growing and people seem
to get pretty interested when they take a look into the idea.
I really think that as it gets more popular, this tool can have a big
positive impact on a lot of open source projects, especially
popular ones like Bugzilla.

Please take a look -->

- http://blog.freedomsponsors.org

There's also a JIRA plugin that will add a (discrete) "Sponsor this issue"
link on the "view issue" page, that will let the user add a sponsorship for
the issue on FS.
It's already being used by the Jenkins Project (see it in action here).
(BTW, does anyone know if one can write plugins for Bugzilla too?)

The website is still beta, but functionality is pretty stable, and I will
implement a few improvements and new functionality soon.
FS is open source on Github (it's a Python+Django app), and feedback and
help is welcome! :-)

I really hope Bugzilla can grow even better because of this initiative
