Mozilla Russia's «Bug Bounty» program Russian

«Bug Bounty» program, launched by Mozilla Russia project, tries to encourage developers to resolve some long-standing bugs, affecting Russian-language users of Mozilla products.

Resolving certain bug reports, listed in Mozilla Russia's buglist in the way described below, will be awarded certain amounts of money. Manner of payment will be agreed with payee.

The full amount of bounty will be awarded if a developer implements the solution to the bug report, described in Mozilla Russia's buglist, gets positive review/superreview/approval and drives the code into the main codebase in the Mozilla's repository under the MPL/GPL/LGPL tri-license standard for the code. If multiple developers take part in the solution to the bug report or the solution to the bug report is incomplete, it's up to Mozilla Russia to decide who will get which amounts.

While Mozilla Russia has intention to stick to rules of this Bug Bounty Program as stated above, Mozilla Russia's «Bug Bounty» program can (theoretically) be terminated at any time without further notice.

Mozilla Foundation employees, Mozilla Corporation employees, the creators and reviewers of the code in which the bug was found are not eligible to receive a bug bounty reward.
