It seems Paul or someone else is working on a more integrated system.  
I'm happy to assist with the code.

I think it would be helpful to identify the exact issues that need to be 
fixed in the Mantis system.

1: The front page doesn't show the (top 10) pledged amounts or monies 
received for Mantis bugs/requests
2: When making a pledge it should be possible to donate immediately
3: We need a target cost for each bug and feature request so that we can 
see how close the pledges and donations are to the goal. When the goal 
is reached it should be scheduled for development.
4: When a pledge is fulfilled it should be made visible on the front 
page. Maybe a seperate module with the total amount paid and target for 
dev which clicks through to a breakdown of how many people have 
contributed/pledged and optionally their names. It could be an option to 
have your name displayed when you make the payment/pledge.

The above would go along way to making the system more dynamic and 
transparent which should encourage more people to contribute and most 
importantly to contribute regularly.
