Ouch! I don't know if Mark has a swimming pool, but I do know he didn't
choose to be born in South Africa, and also that he's too young to have
been responsible for apartheid.

That could be hard to achieve given that Ubuntu/Canonical is backed by
private money and therefore has no statutory responsibility to be 'fair'
to other projects. As for existing projects, Canonical is paying a lot
of Debian developers to work on free software.

If you've got suggestions for a better way of distributing resources,
I'd be glad to hear them. Is there a middle way between bounties and
having hackers under contract, i.e. in proper jobs?
