Death of Arch Bounty

Last September I posted about Arch Bounty, a project I’d written to allow people to post ‘bounties’ to have specific ArchLinux bugs fixed. I didn’t promote it and interest faded quickly. I’ve been thinking of pulling the plug on it for a while now, but it happened unexpectedly yesterday when I accidentally killed half a dozen of the sites on my webhost. I’ve recovered most of them, but I decided that ArchBounty won’t be coming back.

There was one donation to the project; I will be forwarding it directly to the Arch Linux Donations fund.

    i thought it was a good idea, not even bugs but proposals to have someone create something could be cool.
