Andre has made a very good point about that bounty remaining frozen.
Its a situation I wasn't aware of and it does point to some motivation issues.
One of the advantages of a bounty is that it isn't paid until the work is completed.
Subsidizing a developer without specific goals could be problematic.
And, as I hadn't really thought about what we were getting out of it, I really hadn't considered the problem.
Obviously, since Final writer is still a commercial product, time spent on that doesn't benefit us.
And while I'd like to see the AROS AMD Mesa project finished, AROS isn't my primary interest.[ Edited by Jim 13.06.2017 - 08:47 ]
