So one question (and perhaps a selfish concern).

Infrastructure has a significant interest in whimsy (the service and
codebase). I suspect that the ASF is also likely (at least for now)
the primary user. Infrastructure has spent some time and resources,
and even has a contractor that is paid on working on Whimsy and the
associated areas.

My question (and selfish concern) is: We have generally accepted that
the ASF doesn't pay for development on projects. What does that mean
for the contractors? Are they effectively forbidden from doing
development work on Whimsy? In particular, I have a ruby developer
working as a contractor who I'd like to working on things like Whimsy,
secretary workbench, etc.
