Stefano Maffulli, the community manager at Funambol's repository/forge portal recently announced the latest Code Sniper challenge.
The Code Sniper Program offers bounties (yes, real bounties, in the form of cash awards) for "client and connector" code submitted by community members. The chosen application and code is opened and given back to the community. There are a number of projects on the "hit list," and the latest target was named yesterday.
The mission, should you choose to accept it: Develop a GUI-plugin, based on SyncEvolution to easily, visually sync Evolution to the Funambol SyncML servers.
