Some positive ways to motivate developers:

 * The developer of the month (interview with a developer each month or week)
 * The most fixer developer (each month, objectively, we elect the develop who fixes more bugs)
 * The most "new-features" developer (the same as previous for resolve feature request)
 * The most active developer in irc ("the most helper dev"?)
 * And what's about the most documentation-er developer?
 * A prize for a developer of the year of this three categories. The prizes: money, debian CD/DVD kit, a laptop, ....

A negative way to motivate developers:

 * Name and shame slum lords on the [[Slum]] page
