Re: A fair share

So what are you suggesting, that a developer get a share of whatever "savings" you can calculate for fixing a bad bug?

Sounds like an incentive for developers to deliberately insert bugs and share amongst each other so they can all get fat bonuses for fixing problems they created!

If one guy has a proven history of finding nasty bugs that everyone else overlooks then hopefully he gets a better salary - it would be in his employer's best interests to keep someone like him.
