Bounties and Fundraisers¶
We use BountySource to allow monetary contributions to the project and the developers, who push it forward.
There, you can give general funds to the borgbackup members (the developers will then spend the funds as they deem fit). If you do not have some specific bounty (see below), you can use this as a general way to say “Thank You!” and support the software / project you like.
If you want to encourage developers to fix some specific issue or implement some specific feature suggestion, you can post a new bounty or back an existing one (they always refer to an issue in our issue tracker).
As a developer, you can become a Bounty Hunter and win bounties (earn money) by contributing to Borg, a free and open source software project.
We might also use BountySource to fund raise for some bigger goals.
