Hi vbi,
I too am aware of the existance of non-paid people but am unsure what
catagory they are in: developers, local user group leaders, maintainers,
translators... I would expect the 'core' team to be paid. And as Mako
and Klaus Knopper both say, jobs that are not interesting to Floss folks
need to be paid: security guards, accountants, ... One thing that I dont
seem to notice is that Ubuntu folks (who are not DD) are not wanting to
join Debian or dont seem to be directed our way. At least I havent seen
any examples. I'd like this to happen but I guess maybe Ubuntu folks are
scared off by our non-teletubby culture :-)
