There are some Chef bugs that we’d really like to see fixed, but we’re
really tight on engineering resources at Opscode (want a job? ) and
they’re not going to get high enough on the priority for us to fix
Take for instance CHEF-2346  where when you scale the Open Source
Server up to a certain point, solr breaks. Figuring out why it broke
isn’t obvious, but once you do it is easy to get going again. The
solution could be simply increasing the max_field_length value, and
the ground work has been mostly laid for doing so. But there are
design questions around this, and that makes it harder to resolve.
Does anyone know of a successful bounty program, particularly other
than an altruistic one like GSoC?
Would you be incentivized if we began to offer double the hugs from
Adam Jacob in return for contributions instead of the regular single
hugs? Are hugs played out and you want something more?
Seriously, I don’t see much in the way of successful bounty programs
and lots of good arguments are out there as to why. So, what could I
offer /you/ to do a little more work on the project and feel rewarded?
