    So well, what could we do with bounties opened ages ago, like the one to add KHTML to Sputinik browser that is open since 2010 and there are 1900 dollars on it?

    Why don't give money to Fab in order to help him resolve endianess bug in webkit?

    It's not that easy, people have donated money for a specific purpose, and you really have to get their consent to give out the money to someone else.

    Yes, this was also discussed in that thread.

    Well, it's high time to contact people about those bounties anyway. If it is a money issue (I don't get the feeling it is) then opening a bounty for Fab to fix the current problem seems like a good idea. So the donors get that option at the same time.

    How about a bounty to port the Blink engine to Odyssey instead?

    IBM maintain a PPC port with a working V8 JIT.

    As I read it, it's an IBM effort, not Google's.
