Sorry for extending the thread, but now I'm curious...

I'm curious to know, for the RTC communities, what percentage of
contributions come from folks who aren't contributing as part of their day
job?  If I only had opportunities to contribute after work, I would
gravitate to CTR communities.

I keep drawing the analogy of Apache communities to these community
house-building projects.  I'll bet that some aspects of the house are
built by professionals volunteering their time and checked by other
professionals volunteering their time, but lots of pieces can be done by
enthusiasts.  The higher the minimum time and energy required of the
enthusiast, the fewer I would expect there to be.  I've been under the
impression that Apache has a bias towards communities of enthusiasts,
otherwise you really have a consortium.
