> David, your answer gets 5 stars from me.

Ditto... End of the day, the money for said paid developers will be coming
from some monetary contributors, and instead of fighting that they have no
say in how the money is to be spent, we can simply say "Hire the developers
yourself, and do the work you see most fit for you.", which is what happens
in reality.

If you look at the "local time of commits", I think it is pretty clear that
a large portion of all contributions are "at work" or "paid for". And we
are fine with that...

A more interesting question would be; Are projects allowed "Hire a
community member" pages, where individuals can announce their availability
to get paid to work on features or even downstream application of their
Apache Foo project? I can't recall seeing that, although there are such
pages referencing hiring entire companies for this. So, I am curious
whether a market actually exist... since I have on a couple of occasions
secured freelance contracts (without the advert/announcement of
availability) at ASF projects.
