I will not participate in this year, although contributing to and is my day job. First, I already have enough t-shirts. But second, the ecosystem I use on a daily basis is mostly made up of projects that use GitLab, or BitBucket, or sr.ht, or Fossil, or sending patches by mail, or GNU Savannah, or (good grief!) even SourceForge. I think only two of the projects I contributed last year were on GitHub.

The world is so much bigger. Don't forget that.


Can I ask what you do that you get paid to contribute to #OpenSource ?

Also side question. What's your opinion of Fossil?


@kaeedo my company builds embedded linux systems and our customers pay us for that. kind of open-source-developers-as-a-service.
