2) Github integration

If you own Github repositories, consider enabling FreedomSponsors-Github integration.

1) Plugins for JIRA, Bugzilla and Trac

If your project uses a different issue tracker, you might want to take a look at the FreedomSponsors plugins for JIRABugzilla and Trac.

See a live example of the JIRA plugin in use by the Jenkins project.

3) “Sponsor this issue”

Make a “Sponsor this issue” link by pointing it to “http://www.freedomsponsors.org/core/sponsor”
That URL needs a get parameter “trackerURL”, which is the “original” issue URL.

4) get_offers (json API)

After you get the javascript confirmation callback, you might want to verify if the offer was really created.
You can use the “get_offers” json call at “http://www.freedomsponsors.org/core/json/get_offers”
Parameters (GET):

  • trackerURL (required) – the “original” issue URL
  • sponsor_id (optional) – “sponsored by” filter
