Given that you've read previous threads here, I'll just briefly summarise
where I think we stand with regards to bounties:

We've had some success and some failures, but ultimately it required quite a
lot of infrastructure and time to get it right, but hadn't really delivered
on expectations. There are also ongoing concerns about how the introduction
of financial incentives will affect volunteer motivation.

Hopefully that's a useful summary, and I'm sure others will chime in with
other views or additional info if necessary.
