Er... what can I say ?
I am a long time developer, contributor, advisor, although for very small projects, like my owns and some others. And after all these years all I can say is - it's *damn* hard to get free time to work on projects besides my professional ones *and* personal ones.
I'd gladly contribute to major projects like OpenBSD, Linux, you name it... and although I'm childless I have to redirect most of my spare time to my owns, and not much time to contribute to OSS/ODH as I'd like to.
I admire those that do just that. You are my heroes. Although my humble contributions are just some molecules on a raindrop, that makes me feel like a hero too, whenever I spot a bug somewhere or contribute with an idea.
Something that no closed-source user can be proud of.
