    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.
