torpor said:From my perspective, whatever happens with the Developer Fund should be *100% open* and promoted in a game-style setup; which is to say that I think there should be a "Dev Fund" website with a total-figure of how much is available, who contributed to it, and who is currently requesting - with their working applications - that they receive a bit of it.
Imagine if the dev-fund-contributors could all vote on who was going to get 100Euro's this week because of the application they had released: this would *really* promote people making cool apps for the Pandora. If I knew I could - in a live forum, with voting and such - make a few hundred bucks extra a month by hacking on a nice app released to the public, then I'd for sure be writing a kickass app.
So I hope thats how it happens. If it turns into an 'inner circle' clique, with no public view of whats going on, then .. meh ..
