he he, we all have, including you, received money for consulting 
services due to our association and skillset gained from the ASF.
if someone offers you $$ to fix a bug, that is no different. Whether the 
bug gets committed or not, has nothing to do with the $$,
it simply follows the ASF process.

no, but we all live in a monetary world, so unless we are trust fund 
babies, money has to come from somewhere. if you don't like to call that 
funding, fine, but its money, used for a purpose, in your case, pay for 
your time and your equipment that allows you to work on ASF projects :)
