Bug Bounty program

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm (I mean the company I work for) slightly blocked in the developement /
deployment of a new website due to a bug in php. We reported it about 6
weeks ago. I don't think it's a big job to solve but it requires knowledge
of the internals of PHP and access to a x86_64 plateform.

The company is obviously OK to put some cash to have this fixed.

Is there a marketpalce somewhere where I could put the bounty offer.

Cheers.

What type of bug of php did you got? Have you reported to php.net? So
they can fix it in the next release.

Someone else reported it 3 days before me.
http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=39871

We'd like not to wait for the next release if possible, hence the bounty.

You might want to consider a conditional work-around, instead of
trying to create your own, custom version of PHP.

Especially with the particular bug you're trying to address.

I agree with Sanders. You really don't want a custom version of PHP.
For instance, whomever patches it may not do it the same as the PHP
developers, and the results may be different.

But on a more realistic issue - I can't believe this has been a problem
since PHP 4.4.4 and not reported before this. I suspect there is
something else which you haven't discovered yet.

Or maybe it's just an incompatibility between the sybase libs compiled
in to PHP and the ones you are using on your system. Did you try to
recompile the PHP source, for instance?
