Christian, can you explain the last point about some criterias of negotiation of the reward? For example, you said 100$ for plugin which was just recompiled with few tweaks. But, what if plugin has not so much functionality, but was fully rewritten and even enhanced? 100$ too, or some higher? Think, all developers want to know how you asses the maning, demand and difficulty and how you asses the approximate reward level?

As an example and start point, can you write approximate reward for rewriting the CPL plugin and the ProcFS plugin?

That's a difficult question. Let me see: The CPL plugin is relatively simple, and duplicates functionality (accessing the control panel as a virtual folder in TC). It's also not very popular. I would say $150-$200. The ProcFS plugin is very useful, in fact I use it myself. It's also quite a bit more complex, and has 3 times as many downloads. So I think that $400-$500 would be appropriate for a complete rewrite. But as I wrote, this is a question of negotiation, there is no scheme which can be used to calculate the reward.

Please keep in mind that this is just a reward, not a payment for developing something for us! You write it mainly for the TC community.

Just in case somebody does not know (and does not see the corresponding link in the totalcmd.net's main menu), to publish a plugin at totalcmd.net the author needs an account. To create one, please, consult with the page Submit a Plugin.
