Does this mean we're considering posting bounties on bugs? I think
that's a great idea; it seems to be an effective way of generating
interest in solving a bug [1] [2]. But would it be less expensive for
the Foundation to handle bounties itself, rather than going through
Bountysource?  Bountysource takes a 10% cut of each bounty; that seems
quite high. Ideally, the Foundation would handle payment of bounties
instead; presumably our cost of administration would be less than 10%?

Their terms of service [1] are also highly questionable. They reserve
the right to take all the money in our account, or cancel our bounties
without refunding our money, at any time and without any explanation,
without cause or notice (section 6.5). "Without cause" seems like a
pretty good place for us to draw a line....
