In this feedback thread, BorisRybalkin and @vsapronov talk about the concept of team - a group of developers who might resolve an issue together, and get paid as a team instead of individuals.

A related requirement I heard before is the ability to support organizations - a group of users who will tipically be interested in sponsoring issues.

FS will probably need to support this in the near future.

Need to work out the user experience though. Maybe those two concepts could be modelled as the same thing.
Opinions are welcome!

Opinion: It seems to exist a force that will push every Github social feature to FS. This is understandable since Github is the market benchmark. But FS need to develop it's core scope.

This is not a FS core feature now. Maybe when people start making a lot of money this will be mandatory, but not until then. To grow lean, it's important to keep focus.

So, I've been getting a few requests for this.
I think a initial implementation could be as simple as:

  1. Create an organization
  2. Add people as "owner" or "member"
  3. Allow placing sponsorships in name of organization (instead of users)
  4. Allow anyone in the organization to pay for a sponsored issue.
