posting coding bounties, appropriate money amounts?

I am curious about posting some coding bounties, my current interest
revolves around improving the ZVOL functionality in FreeBSD: fixing
the known ZVOL SWAP reliability/stability problems as well as making
ZVOLs work as a dumpon device (as is already the case in OpenSolaris)
for crash dumps. I am a private individual and not some huge Fortune
100 and while I am not exactly rich, I am willing to put some of my
personal money towards this. I am curious though, what would be the
best way to approach this: directly approaching committer(s) with the
know-how-and-why of the areas involved or through the FreeBSD
Foundation? And how would one go about calculating the appropriate
amount of money for such a thing?


- Sincerely,
Dan Naumov
