Yes, I agree with this approach and it's how BidforFix is envisioned
to work. qgis should be an umbrella, guaranteeing the quality of the
work and declaring the issues fixed and released (or not).

The target should have substantial margin (25%) so that even if a
couple of people decide to withdraw their bids in the last moment, or
are unreachable the rest should keep the dev happy. In general, this
is new territory so the participants should be comfortable with some
degree of uncertainty.

However, our experience shows that the atmosphere around the campain
is quite positive and boths sides usually try to do their best.
