On the other hand Gnome does have a problem with losing valuable
volunteer work. (And they may or may not know this themselves).
I used to work a bit on the Gimp. Not much, but I found a few bugs,
immersed myself in the source code for half a weak, produced patches,
submitted them. Core developers seemed to be happy with my patches,
applied them, thanked me.
I stopped doing that when the mailing-list software started bouncing
my mails to the developer list with a "You're not subscribed here. Go
away". (But I was subscribed, just not with the public address that I
put in From lines).
