Hi William,

As others have already noted, open source communities don't usually
have formal relationships with companies. From a project's point of
view, individual contributors spend time on the project for any number
of reasons. One of those reasons could be that time is spent under
a contract of employment and hence affiliation with an employer.
But the reason why somebody has time to contribute to the project
is not actually relevant to the development process.

I recommend reading which
should provide some insight into the economics of open source.
