I suppose a few people might think so, but there are lots of maintainers
who maintain only a few packages for some "selfish" reason, either
as the original author of the packaged software or as a member of a
company. So long as you maintain the package reasonably well, I don't
see the problem. If the package is useful, then nobody should care
whether or not you're being payed to package it.
