  Hey, that's not really a cultural difference here. If you really
already know for sure some people won't never ever get paid, how could
they feel otherwise?

  And I'm curious, which "kind" of developer will never get paid?

  I suppose you meant efficient ?

  IMHO the answer is simple: do not let a subpart of Debian try to fund
another subpart of it, and let third party contractors do that if they
want. Or do not pay people, but events or devcamps for teams that have
very important task to achieve and that can benefit from such camps.
