Who pays your bread? Why is it that you (contributors) work on the
things that you personally like, but not what your customers want?

I'm sure that we would even find paying sponsors if we come up with a
list of good projects. Did anyone try that out lately...?

Sometimes I feel like I should say that some contributions have improved
TYPO3 to the worse. Then again, I think it's better to not speak that out...

Only because someone contributes a change does not mean that it
qualifies as a core feature for everyone. So yes we need authoritative
visions to make it clear for everyone if it's worth to work on a task...

Good night!
