Re: [tdf-discuss] Sponsored Bug Repair ?


Why should'nt TDF go ahead and employ one of the former OOo developers or someone else from the 
community?
I think there would be much interest from users and companys to pay for fixing bugs / implementing 
new features.

Hi Fernand,

I hope Michael and other TDF-members are reading this.

As we love to have a Email body when sending emails with the API, our
company is willing to fund this kind of repair work.

Repair or enhancement...
(Side note on the subject: I can imagine that somehow the Python component could be useful.)

The interested makes a Enhancement request
The TDF put a price on it
The interested pays TDF in advance
After TDF and interested is satisfied TDF pays the Developer or keeps
the money for other projects
Simple ?

Sounds reasonable.
However ... TDF does not employ developers.
Developers are employees of sponsoring companies, or students, or (other) volunteers, or self 
employed...

So either your company makes a deal with one of the supporting companies for the work, or find 
another developer to do the work.

Of course it makes most sense if the developer that picks up the task has experience with 
LibreOffice/OpenOffice.

I have hardly any experience in other open source projects, but I can imagine that setting up a 
page with bounty-projects, is a reasonable approach to broadcast both your and other 
wishes/possibilities.

What do you think?
