I'm really not sure that is how I would do the translation to Fedora
in this case. For most Fedora users the "product" is largely a gift
where nothing is exchanged. To see a real exchange we need to look at
Fedora contributors, not Fedora users. When we give the contributors
what they want they give back to the project.
