Funding - Would the BOINC repo be open to a 'Tip for Commit' donation system? #1493
With the news last year that funding for BOINC Was ending, would BOINC devs/community be open to a 'Tip4Commit' style donation mechanism? I.e. Users donate x quantity of a cryptocurrency, and every dev commit unlocks a small portion of the donations.
Source project: https://tip4commit.com/
We could potentially port the above linked project to use Gridcoin & throw some foundation coins at the BOINC github project. But it would require prior consent of the BOINC devs before being worth implementing.
So what's the consensus on the idea?
Thanks for your time,
Rather than porting tip4commit, we could port peer4commit for better initial compatibility (gridcoin is closer to peercoin than bitcoin): https://github.com/grctest/peer4commit
Still requires the approval of the github repo admins - I should have proposed this idea to the BOINC community governance rather than creating an issue on the BOINC repo..
You should explain (to the BOINC Management Committee) how this works. Like who decides when a feature is implemented and which commits receive the funds raised. Does one need to register somewhere to get the funds? What if multiple persons are working on a feature?
