Open software developers use #sponsorneeded to label issues and pull requests that require others to step up with coder time or monetary support.
We won’t do this for free right now, but we’re open to it if someone else does the work without taking lots of our time, or hires one of us to prioritize it.
If your issue or pull request gets marked #sponsorneeded:
- Answer follow-up questions from contributors about the work you hope gets done.
- Volunteer to do the work yourself.
- Offer to pay for someone else to do the work.
- Close the issue if you can’t pitch in, one way or another.
If your issue or pull request gets marked #sponsorneeded, do not:
- Demand free work or attention.
- @-mention other contributors in hopes they will do it for free.
