On Hold - the Bounties need to be reassessed and redesigned

What are Bounties?

Bounties are monetary rewards for contributions to an open source project. These bounties are offered for specific, defined projects within an open source project. When the goal of a specific bounty is achieved to the satisfaction of the reviewer, the bounty money is paid out to the person who completed the bounty requirements. Documentation Bounties

The Documentation project and the Community Council are offering bounties on some specific Development documentation projects. These bounties will cover tasks from collecting and sorting development information and documentation up to producing and publishing documentation detailing how to develop with and for and how to contribute as an developer.

The Documentation Bounties are being offered as an incentive to fill a critical documentation need. Working on these Bounties will provide you the opportunity to communicate and work with experienced developers.

If you have an idea for a Bounty that is not already listed here, please send an email with your suggestion to the Documentation Project mailing list. Bounty Guidelines

  1. Each documentation task will be defined in the Current Bounties table.
  2. A task that has an incomplete prerequisite task cannot be assigned or started until the prerequisite task is completed.
  3. To accept a task, you must communicate with the Reviewer via the Documentation Project mailing list. The task will be assigned to you and you become the Owner.
  4. Owners and Reviewers will discuss the details of the task and agree on a time to deliver the document.
  5. Owners are expected to complete the assigned task within the agreed time.
  6. When a task is completed by an Owner, the Reviewer will review the task, and approve it if it is complete.
    • Reviewers will work with the Owner to make sure that the tasks are completed to a level that meets the minimum requirements of each bounty/task.
  7. Conditions of payout of bounties:
    • Bounties will be paid out to the Owner when a task is completed, and the Reviewer has agreed that the minimum conditions of the task have been met.
    • Bounties will be paid out by wired bank transfer or PayPal.
  8. Conditions of incomplete tasks and non-payment of bounties
    • If an Owner knows that he/she will miss the deadline for a task, he/she should communicate this to the Reviewer as soon as possible. The Owner and Reviewer should discuss this and agree on an extension. If a task is repeatedly extended, the value of the bounty will be decreased, or the task will be canceled.
    • Any task that is incomplete at the deadline will be closed. The bounty will not be paid out to the Owner who did not complete the task. An incomplete task may be reopened for other people to work on.
