[SUGGESTION] Join the EU-FOSSA (Free and Open Source Software Auditing) project

The EU-FOSSA project – short for Free and Open Source Software Auditing – aims to increase the security and integrity of critical open source software. It was launched by the European Commission at the instigation of the European Parliament after the discovery of the Heartbleed bug in 2014.

Following the success of an initial pilot, the project was renewed for another three years. This builds on the pilot project by extending the auditing of free and open source software through:
  • setting up bug bounty programmes,
  • organising hackathons and conferences, and
  • engaging with developer communities.
In addition, EU-FOSSA is expanding its scope to a wider range of software projects and communities. Since the very same software used by the European institutions is also widely deployed in society, we are all already benefiting from these investments.

I could be wrong but it kinda seems like this would more be targeting mature software that is already in active use.

Finding security bugs in ReactOS is trivially easy at this point. We don't need help yet, it'd be a waste of money to pay someone bounties for it.
