It would be cool to directly integrate crowdfunding (from users) for the tasks/features.

@jherskowitz Definitely. This platform does that already : but it hasn't acquired enough popularity!

I like the feel of this a lot more than other freelance-directed sites like Odesk. The search function could use some improvement though. I want to be able to search for keywords like "PSD" or "responsive", not just search for repos.

@rjun07a Agreed!

Really interesting, may give it a try... any .NET devs on the platform?

@mmezzacca Sweet! Right now we don't have a breakdown on what developers are specialized in. We're actively recruiting developers from GitHub and mailing lists so if you post a task, I'm confident we'll find you someone great :-)

Seems like a cool concept. Make money by working on open source tasks.
