In reply to Druck:

There are no doubt many RISC OS programmers with similar views to your own - I never imagined otherwise. The questions I am looking to answer are: - whether there are programmers for whom either a nominal or a substanial reward would make a difference, and - whether there are tasks which need doing which would not otherwise be done because they are not sufficiently interesting to those who program purely for intellectual enjoyment.

(I'm obviously hoping that the answer to these questions is 'yes', but I can't prove it yet and it is very useful to hear what people think. I also take Druck's point that we need to be careful not to demotivate existing programmers. That's one reason why it would be essential for the organisation to be democratic and transparent.)
