Quoting Jesse Keating <jkeating@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>:
No, it's not the same. Opensource works because a lot of people like working on creating new code and improving existing code. Maintaining old code is just not fun/glamorous work.
Yet people do it without a paycheck. Why? Either because they have a self-interest in it besides a paycheck, or they want the fame, or they want to help others, or some other equally foolish reason. The point is, people will do it without a paycheck if it is important to them.
The majority of work done in this area of opensource is done by paid engineers
Yes, but that doesn't mean the minority should be ignored.
and what isn't done by paid engineers is most often based on what paid engineers are doing.
In certain types of projects, yes. (That was the way FL was run, since it was coding into the project that it was to be done that way).
