The GnuCash Bounty Program "GCBoP" has started and is running until July 26. 
We invite everybody to review the list of eligible tasks and to contribute 
patches that complete those tasks. Every finished task will be awarded a $200 
bounty! For the details, see

and the key points below.

How does it work?

The GCBoP program puts a bounty on the completion of any of the tasks that are 
listed on our GCBoP page [1], for any contributions received between June 1 
and July 26, 2013.

Some of the current developers will be act as Evaluators. As soon as some 
contributor sends in a patch that completes a task, one evaluator from our 
Pool of Evaluators will evaluate this contribution and decide whether a task 
is "done" so that the bounty is paid.
