Matt writes: We've got a site in development called www.SponsorBSD.org where sponsors can post a project, and other people can contribute financially towards the bounty. Multiple developers can then sign up for that project and contribute code that is viewable by all via web cvs or that remains private in case of closed bounties. A founding sponsor, team leader, or admin can then divvy the bounty up to the contributors based on effort or selected solution."
