As I reported earlier, Linden Lab is considering giving out bounties for features they want to see implemented. While Linden Lab has not yet a bounty to offer Adam Zaius now took the step to introduce community bounties for features people from the community would like to see implemented.
As he seems to have problem compiling it with his version of MSVC he gave out a bounty for writing a howto about it. Now it might be interesting to see if other people will follow and give out their bounties (e.g. virtual service companies) and to see how Linden Lab reacts and eventually adds money to given bounties or eventually even rejects them for inclusion in the official client (the howto is of course sort of a different thing here).
So these might be the first sign of the creation of a community around the source code. More will follow, I am sure.
