Is it bazaar specific?

I guess a large proportion of code produced within commercial
and/or "cathedral" projects never sees production, either for
small portions of code, or on a larger scale when the whole
project fails or gets cancelled for internal or external
reasons, and that's far from an unusual occurrence.
Of course, on commercial projects programmers still get paid
before the project is cancelled, but the open source
participant can still get a lot of fame (or notoriety)
especially when having worked on such a core subsystem
of the Linux kernel. And the code is still there, so
some of it will get reused one way or another if it's
to post comments)
