Ok let me take some time here and be the “devil’s advocate”. Aka the bad guy.
The total bounty put out here is worth $2000. At a rate of $20/hour, this is about 100 hours of work for all 4 bounties. I have heard/seen work rate for ERPNext development in the range about $15-$90/-hour.
Who will attempt it?
high experience org : will not take it up. (why would they, if they are busy with other paid work?)
med experience org : may / may not depending if the business is slow or they are feeling extra benevolent
low experience org : might attempt to do it.
Is this feasible?
Now can all this be done in 100 hours?
Just reading/understanding the spec, …will take about 1-2 man weeks. That is about 30-60% of budget gone.
A bounty should be worth it. It should be bountiful.
Is this a good idea?
The first features that make it to the list -> implied priority
Priority, should be owned and not “outsourced” or “bountied”
If out sourced, it should be done with some serious backing with the money, so very experienced developers and aspiring developers can take a crack at it. In other words, It should be bountiful.
So if the bounty doesn’t create a feeding frenzy, it is not going to be for the money for sure.
BTW: how long before we know if this system is working?
Is it time bound? At the moment, the ETA on these are undefined.
Which means from meeting deadlines on the priority topics would be uncertain.
