If 50/100 bucks doesn't attract anyone, maybe 500/1000 could. I
thought about using a reward offering page for each feature or bug
important for some people.
Do you have a bugtracker or something to track those ?
Maybe we could add a plugin for people to offer bounties on specific
tickets and for dev to see how much people want them fixed and what
they can earn by stepping in. Maybe I can help finding/writing such a
plugin (depending of the language used)

Of course, that is just useful when we have some dev around. I,
myself, won't step in as I don't have much time, and enough skill to
work on GTA04 even if I had some money to buy one. Hardware/embedded
development is somewhat harder than just software development.

Good luck with this project. And thank you for your work.
