Right now I just want to focus on the bounty system.

Yes I think you and Alex are right. We should budget more of whatever money we get for that.

Yes its mainly a matter of legalism. There has to be some controling party to manage the books and
such. The way that Jason and I planned it was that the board would have no real power other than
to do the will of the majority of the developers. The board members could also be recalled and
appointed by vote.
