In my opinion there are two types of people who contribute to open source projects: - those who need some motivation(external) to contribute, and there are likely to leave project when source of their motivation is gone - those who don't need any other motivation than free time, and they will contribute to one or more projects because they like it What I got from jtr contribution (alphabetical order): - a lot of knowledge - access to hardware that I am not able to buy - contribution to this project was more important for my current employer than previous work experience - cool 0-day tshirts - good point to start with infosec - met great people here - money (gsoc) - participation in contests with john-users which was cool itself - possibility to do what I always wanted - some of my work was appreciated by the community (at least I hope so) - found a way to use my free time to something usefull (for others) and cool (for me) Lukas
