While it would certainly be the most convenient to have everything
centrally located, the accounting for it gets a little sticky unless you
have some sort of administrator, and keeping track of other peoples
pledges, payments, etc is tough enough in-house. We set up this
mechanism as a first step, so that at least we can track what is going
on in our small little world. Perhaps we could set up a clearing house
site or section on icdevgroup.org that would list just projects and
developers, with links from the respective projects to the appropriate
developer sites. Then each developer could be responsible for
incorporating their own accounting leg of the entity.
Mike had some pretty valid points in an earlier mail regarding potential

There are many examples on the web of systems that allow users to "rate"
