You never loose your motivation because some developers get paid
to work on Debian tasks, unless you're jealous.
I personaly have no real idea whether Dunc Tank is a good thing or
a bad one, but seeing that a group of people is trying to improve
Debian in some respect increases my motivation.
I see no evil in giving people financial compensations for working
full time on some key Debian tasks. If such people give the project
their best with faith and dedication and enjoy it, I am very very
happy for both them and the project.
