We've been asked if we could quickly implement new features in #Liberapay so that it could replace #Bountysource, which has been doing shady things. We can't and we don't want to. Encouraging people to pay for a specific issue to be solved is problematic, it creates bad incentives instead of providing stable funding for the proper maintenance and development of a project. If you still think bounties are a good idea, then you can try to revive freedomsponsors.org/

@mmu_man We know, our message is mostly to remind everyone why Liberapay doesn't provide a bounty system.

You can find a few more details about the aborted Bountysource ToS change on GitHub: github.com/bountysource/core/p
