Open source development has long been thought of as a hobby. Research as early as 2001 however has shown that not all open source is done on a volunteer basis. Organizations are involved in the open source community in different ways: developing open source software, sponsoring open source projects with grants our bounties. The effects of this financial sponsorship of a project is not always bliss, as can be seenĀ  for instance on thisĀ  thread on the wikitech-l mailing list from September 2010.
