open politics time market

An open politics time market permits any participant in the open politics web to offer or request time from any other participant. The commit verb and time interval and time commitment must all be specified very exactly and _user_signed tag must be added to make the commitment visible to others. Typical example offers and requests might read as (language is approximate):

Someone may attach the deadline or other details without much risk of error, if these are missing, but doing this manually is impossible.

Eventually the open politics toolbar evolves away from a find bar in this direction to a prediction market in which both American options and European options can be traded. This integrates with an election prediction market capability which is increasingly common - and, in the UK at least, more trusted than polls.
