Like a bounties page?

(If such a thing doesn't currently exist it would be a good idea for 
someone to start one)  In my experience though they generally don't get 
a lot of attention and you're maybe better off on a case-by-case basis 
approaching a developer you know that could do the work for you.

Is there a company that produces a commercially supported version of 
FreeBSD that also actively contributes back and doesn't keep anything 
closed?  (ixsystems is about as close as I can think to such a thing.  
Sorry if this is really obvious, but I don't track this space so closely)
