Well, there are 428 items in the tracker now that are flagged Bug, Bug:Usability, or Feature Request. (about 60 in June, and 30 in July but July is only half gone)
132 are Bug:Usability, and 182 are feature request. There are overlaps as stuff can be flagged in more than one section. Also, exactly what exactly is a bug or a feature request can sometimes be debatable. This could be a problem in "making bugs non bountiable".
Anyway, even if we just take 182/428*60 = 26 feature request per month. If just 15% bountied, that would be 4 bountied per month. At maturity, the proportion will be much higher.... say 50% = 13 per month.
