I want to be able to tag images in fullscreen view so badly that it is
easily worth $50 to me. I think that others feel this way about
different bugs too. I imagine that a few individuals could easily pool
together enough money to create some real motivation.
I, too, think bounties would work. I'm just a regular user who wants
f-spot to keep rocking his socks. I'm going to have a real job soon
(having just graduated from college), which means an income, and what
better use for my money than making my computer experience even better?
(One day I might try hacking f-spot, since I do know how to program these
adding machines we've all got lying around.)
There are a bunch of bounty infrastructure web sites, and I would suggest
using one of them. I'd suggest launchpad.net/bounties for a code-oriented
service, but in the event that you're having trouble reaching some floor
of money, you could use the pledgebank.com service (fundable.org adds
convenience to this model but charges 7% for distribution of funds, which
may or may not be worth it depending...).
