Debian takes code from websites with donation buttons, economic
incentive options, kickstarter updates, support contracts, developer
sponsorships, programs and projects of all kinds and general invitations
to participate.

Strips them all out. Then strait faced, delivers them to consumers who
are never given the opportunity to know about any of it.

Debian is sanitizing programmer's work for general consumption. This may
be better than being a random website with incomparable, uncompiled
source code. But it's not the strongest relationship, esp where
economics are concerned.
