Contributing to free software requires privilege. Even regular contributors might sometimes find themselves without it.

Time, focus and money. You might find yourself lacking in one of these at various points in your life.

While software projects from startups move like streams, most free software projects move like glaciers. They move slowly but they keep moving for decades.

Being away from a project doesn't mean you have to give it up. You can join back later.

@njoseph @patrick I think being paid also helps a lot. ūüėČ

@letterus @njoseph certainly one way to ensure availability of "time, focus and money".

Of course it also means that you sold out to The Man[TM] so you're better paid well enough to make it worthwhile to be insulted every now and then...

@patrick @njoseph Being independent is of great value of course. But as a user I think if I were able to help pay devs dedicated to make apps of quality I know from proprietary indy sofware devs (one or two person companies), I'd strongly support that
