Money is a universal motivator. There are hundreds of open issues in the tracker and if users were able (and encouraged) to spend money to get them fixed, that number would go down much faster than just waiting for someone with the expertise, time and motivation to do so.
This idea sounds interesting to me, but instead of looking at external websites for paid coding, do you think it is possible to use the "Wanted!" forum on this board? I mean, each user that wants to contribute to phpBB, but doesn't know how to code, can pay someone for solving one issue in the tracker. Does this sound right to you?

EDIT: I mean, by receiving payment from a supportive phpBB user, some coder can do paid work for the benefit of phpBB instead of doing paid work for someone else
Thats all good and well but the code would then have to be accepted by the phpBB team and if not its money wasted :?

PhpBB Discussion. It deals with donating to people who work with PhpBB.

Edit: I'm not trying to back seat mod or anything. I'm just curious why this is a General topic.
