Google Broadens Reward Program Again

Google has expanded its Patch Reward Program, which is given to developers who proactively improve their open source software. Among the additions to the program are Web servers such as Apache and httpd; the OpenVPN application for implementing virtual private networks; and the Android Open Source Project, a Google-led initiative that has produced a software stack for a wide range of mobile devices. Last month, Google started providing incentives between $500 and $3,133.70 for proactive improvements to open source software, as opposed to patching a known bug. (SlashDot)(The Next Web)(Google)
