I completely agree, Russ. And I work for a manufacturing company.
How would Debian benefit if I can no longer take the Bacula packages
that I'm building for my employer anyway, and upload them to Debian?
I certainly am not willing to maintain them twice, and before we
decided to use Bacula at work, the Bacula packages in Debian were in
such a mess that they had been removed from testing for months.
This is a small example of the benefit Debian derives from people
working on Debian at their job.
