'His only request is that he wants to see the amount get over $10,000 so is requesting others donate what they can,' says the story at Rock on!"

Assume that a developer starts working on this huge project and actually gets it to compile, and then other developers join in and get it to actually start up, and then dozens of other developers submit patches and iron out some of the bigger bugs. Assume that after a couple of years it kind of works but it's still buggy.

Who gets the money? When do you decide the project is "finished" and award the money? Who makes these decisions?

It seems to me that someone needs to organize these kinds of things and answer these questions.
