Hi Nyall,

What would be exactly the meaning of that label?

If a developer adds that label, does that mean the she would be interested
in implementing the feature if she get paid for it?

What if another developer is willing to implement it for free? She just
removes the label and starts working on it?

I'm not sure we want to expose this kind of things in the issue tracker, I
mean we should probably use other channels and perhaps add some other label
that clearly indicates that there is a fundraising campaign running for
that particular issue/feature.

If there is a running campaign I think it's totally fine to put a link to
the campaign (and a label) in the issue.

Btw, thanks for raising the topic, in general I like very much the idea to
give more visibility to fund-raising campaigns (which includes crowdfunding
of course).
