I worked on this actually the strawman was with Casey to do it for OWASP
infrastructure not "projects" related to responsible disclosure of
vulns in OWASP and OWASP would pay bounty findings think all public facing
OWASP stuff

There was similar discussion with Synack https://www.synack.com/ and Hacker
One https://hackerone.com/ too

barter is great in addition to membership of the owasp foundation but
barter should not be a vehicle to free membership.
