The following bugs will all make the pot increase, either this month, or in future months:
Zilla items with growpot keyword
So, this is how things work:
-- find a project you want to work on (either to something that interests you, or something marked growpot above)
-- get a patch, get it reviewed, get it committed
-- when things make it into CVS, file a contribution that you did it.
-- make sure other people know of your contribution (perhaps reply in the zilla item with your "ack my contribution" URL)
-- voters ack your contribution, and weight them against others made so far in the month
-- at the end of the month, magic math (not yet committed) runs, and everybody with votes towards items of theirs get voting power for next month (and optionally a piece of the pot, if you're not me or lisa....)
Things will be confusing for a while, but it should be more obvious to everybody when the next session starts and you can use the voting tools.
