Here I question what does he promise to develop for VMware?
Most important would be a special X11 driver for XFree86.
But this is included with XFree86 4.x AFAIK.

The other thing nice to have beeing the VMware tools. But
since these arn't open source it is VMware's tune to make
them available...

The only patches to submit at the time beeing, are some
for XFree86.
