Mattermost Bounty Program: Microsoft Teams support in Matterbridge ($)

Mattermost has launched a bounty program for adding support for Microsoft Teams in Matterbridge.

Criteria

For the MS Teams Connector we are hoping to allow Mattermost users to connect with MS Teams users:

  • via Shared Channels. We need to also consider an approach of connecting individual users between Mattermost and MS Teams.

  • When messages are edited in Teams --> they should be updated in MM

  • Emojis and code blocks should render properly in MS Teams

We would like to discuss detailed requirements with each submitter.

Eligibility

Eligibility is limited to countries we can pay the bounty to. Wires to notable banks are preferred, but other options exist. Please contact us to ensure eligibility.

Moreover, submissions must meet the criteria specified in “Rules” section below.

Paid staff or hiring candidates on a paid audition are not eligible to participate.

Rules

Multiple submissions are considered on a first-come first-served basis. If the first submission meets the bounty criteria, the first submission receives the bounty.

If multiple people are interested in working on the bounty, we encourage people to work together. The bounty is allocated equally to all contributors. However, Mattermost reserves the right to split the bounty unequally, for instance, when one of the contributors completed the majority of the work.

At all times, Mattermost reserves the right to decide if a submission receives a bounty, but we aim to set clear expectations and strive for transparency and fairness throughout the process.

To submit your entry for a bounty

All submission winners will need to submit a W-9 (US based prize winners) or W-8BEN (for non-US prize winners); an invoice or other equivalent paperwork to ap@mattermost.com claiming the prize with proper authorization; completed Mattermost contributor license agreement; and banking information via this Google form. If you are prize winner based in the US, we are required by the IRS to issue a 1099 form for money or prizes earned greater than $600 in any given calendar year.
