I agree with the objections so far to pay-per-bug. It would be an
administration nightmare and probably wouldn't incite the developers
to work harder on those bugs/projects.

We've already go the "vote for bug" popularity contest, which can be
used to work out bug fix priorities.

There's plenty you can do with helping Wine that's not
developer-related. We're always looking for good app/version
maintainers on AppDB, documentation writers etc. Even just answering
questions on the forum, wine-users mailing list or #winehq IRC channel
is invaluable help (developers don't usually get time to do these
