I wouldn't say the commercial developpers are necessarily the most active
and helpful community members.
Look for example at Robert Newson. He's not employed by Couchio or Cloudant
and yet he's constantly helping users through the users' mailing list and
the IRC channel. And of course, he does many code contributions as well and
participates a lot in the development discussions.
