Another formal announcement will go out tomorrow, but to tide you over
One of the things about the open source community that continues to baffle
those non-open source people is, "why do you do it?" Open source
developers work on open source software for a number of reasons from
scratching an itch to gaining a reputation to building a resume to
contributing to a good cause. The interesting problem comes when money
enters into the equation. Research shows that when someone works on
something for free (for internal rewards) if you start paying them you
replace those internal rewards. Then if you stop paying them, they will
stop working on it. Does that hold true for open source software? Are
commercial companies killing open source by paying people to work on it?
