I’ll attach the emails here, along with the Nextcloud discussion thread. All of this happened about 48 hours ago, but revised ToS have been promised in their last email to donors.
Announced new Terms of Service. Unclaimed bounties 2 years old or more will be seized by bountysource itself. This would include the $5k bounty for e2e encryption on Syncthing and any others.

You are receiving this email because we are updating the Bountysource Terms of Service, effective 1st July 2020.
We have added a Time-Out clause to the Bounties section of the agreement:
2.13 Bounty Time-Out.
If no Solution is accepted within two years after a Bounty is posted, then the Bounty will be withdrawn and the amount posted for the Bounty will be retained by Bountysource. For Bounties posted before June 30, 2018, the Backer may redeploy their Bounty to a new Issue by contacting email@example.com before July 1, 2020. If the Backer does not redeploy their Bounty by the deadline, the Bounty will be withdrawn and the amount posted for the Bounty will be retained by Bountysource.
You can read the full Terms of Service here
What do I need to do?
If you agree to the new terms, you don’t have to do anything.
If you have a bounty posted prior to June 30, 2018 that is not currently being solved, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to redeploy your bounty. Or, if you do not agree with the new terms, please discontinue using Bountysource.
Thanks for reading

Withdrawal of new Terms of Service
Yesterday, we communicated a change to the Bountysource Terms of Service (ToS) agreement.
These changes have been withdrawn and the ToS reverted to its prior state.
The ToS will be revised and clarified in the future.
