Ortelius XRPL Bounty Process
Contributed by Steve Taylor, Ortelius Core Contributor
How To Get Paid For Contributing to the Ortelius Ledger Project
Ortelius has been given a $75K Grant (see GitHub Repo ortelius/la-sbom-ledger) by the XRP Ledger to build on top of their blockchain ledger. The high-level project plan is here.
This Grant will be paid out to individuals that participate work around Ortelius and XRPL using the Linux Foundation CrowdFunding program.
Rules for Participation
- Tasks will be broken down into GitHub Issues that include the description of the work needed, the deliverable and the bounty amount.
- A contributor can self assign the issue to themselves and start work on a GitHub fork for the deliverable.
- The contributor will then submit a PR to submit the deliverable for review to the corresponding Ortelius repo.
- 3 reviewers will be needed to “approve” the PR/deliverable for payment of the bounty to the contributor. The contributor will make any changes requested by the reviewers and update the same PR with those commits.
- 1 bounty (flying saucer) = 15 mins of work.
- 4 bounties = $65 USD
- Bounties will be assigned to each issue based on estimated time to complete the task.
- Issues should have only 1 person assigned by default. Collaborative work on a single issue should be noted in the PR with bounty allocation listed for each contributor.
- If needed, new issues should be added to address additional work instead of updating the bounty amount on an existing issue.
- The contributors will get paid monthly based on the number of bounties they have collected in a month.
- The payment will be made using the Linux Foundation Crowdfunding program.
- Bounty disputes will be handled by the Ortelius Governing Board.
- Governing Board decisions are final.
