I think it is useful to understand the nature of contributions. It has
some up several times before in various discussions that we had in the
past about strength of the Fedora community and vendor participation.
So I should log in to the package database and click yes I'm being paid
to do this or no I'm know being paid to do this? Whats the default?
Where can I find these various discussions?
