    I am not aware of what the devs plan for promoting and rewarding contributions will be however I have a modest suggestion: BitHub[1] is basically an app that was developed by Open Whisper Systems[2] the makers of the Signal Private Messenger (which I highly recommend for anyone who is concerned about privacy and security).

    BitHub essentially pays a Bitcoin bounty for every submission that is accepted to a GitHub repository.
    If we could fork it and get it working with Decred I believe it could be one important part of the compensation strategy.

    We could have fixed rewards for large/complex features or enhancements to Decred and "DecHub" rewards for simple commits.

    I apologize if the devs already have an unannounced system in place to manage compensation, I simply felt there might be some value in this automated approach.

    I am also interested in hearing about other approaches from the community so please comment and share your thoughts on alternatives if you wish.
