Since hledger aims to be an ultra-dependable tool, I'd like to reduce our rate of regressions (unplanned breakage/changes in things that used to work) being shipped. About 13 have been discovered/reported in the last 6 months. See this mail list thread brainstorming ideas, and also note this bounty proposal:

I'm thinking this would be a great use of our project funds on opencollective: give bounties for new regressions found in master. I will pay $50 for the next regression found (as judged by me, see examples below).

Update on the regression bounty:

  • I am claiming the first one myself, for # 1597 !
  • The bounty is now recurring: you can claim it again for new regressions.
  • From this point forward, the amount per regression will be $100 (increased from $50). I'll adjust if it starts getting too expensive.
  • To claim the bounty:
    1. Open an issue
    2. Get it confirmed as a regression by me. (Current definition:
      An unplanned not-good change / I know it when I see it / Like the past examples.)
    3. Submit an expense:
      2. SUBMIT EXPENSE (if you are logged in, it moves under the ACTIONS menu)
      3. Type: Invoice
      4. Expense title: regression bounty
      5. Description: #issuenumber, optionally with title, or issue url
      6. Amount: $100
    4. Wait for me to approve it
    5. Wait for open collective to pay out (twice a week).
