I claimed a bounty recently, and I just wanted to say thanks to Andrei and
his company for backing the bounty.

I won't be able to take any future bounties from Facebook due to internal
competition policies, but that's ok as I'm now a paid programmer anyway. :)

It was fun to win something while coding! Cheers!

Also, while most bugs are bountied by Facebook, not all of them are. For instance, I created this one a few weeks back in an attempt to increase its chances of getting fixed sooner rather than later (since it's blocking me from resolving an issue in std.datetime): https://www.bountysource.com/issues/1795383-internal-error-backend-cgobj-c-2313-with-rebindable-immutable-timezone-in-std-datetime - Jonathan M Davis

We just set up a significant bounty for this bug: https://www.bountysource.com/issues/2900969-struct-destructors-are-not-called-by-the-gc-but-called-on-explicit-delete However, it is referenced on BountySource under the "DLang's Issue Tracking System - D" project instead of the (more publicized) "D Programming Language" project, so it is hard to find. Andrei, is there any reason to have 2 different projects there? How to make sure our bounty also appears on the main project page on BountySource? Thanks!

 Thanks!

I had a similar problem, and had to contact the folks at BountySource to get it straightened out. Mike

Now *that* I definitely cannot work on. It's a complete conflict of interest due to our two companies. :) But anyway, there's plenty of bountyless bugs to work on as well.
