TodoTracker - get money for fixing TODO tests

[ #36034 ]

It took a bit (ok, a lot) longer than planned, but is proud to annouce the first working prototype of the Management System for TODO Test Bounties (aka Todo Tracker) as part of the Winter^WSpring of Code:

If you're a maintainer of a Perl project and have something that needs doing head to the the Todo Tracker and enter a TODO test for your project. will review all submitted Todo tests. Accepted Todos will be published so that people willing to implement the features / fix the bugs can apply to do them. Providing the project maintainers agree, the implementor gets some time to do his/her work and will hopefully come back with a result that fulfils the test stated with the project. When this is done and the project maintainers verify that their Todo is fixed, pays the specified amount into the implementor's bank account.

The TODO Tracker was implemented by Matt S Trout, who donated the €1,000 earmarked for the development back into the TODO Budget for Catalyst and DBIC related projects. It is still a bit work in progress, but we want to go ahead before this turns into a Summer of Code... plans to spend up to €4,000, plus €1,000 more for Catalyst / DBIx::Class projects. We would again like to thank all Sponsors and Attendees of YAPC::Europe 2007 who made this project possible by making the YAPC such a big success.

You can find more information on how this project works in our wiki.
