I don't. At Command Prompt we practice a very simple theory:

If you take care of your employees, they will take care of you.

Command Prompt tries to do the same with the Community. We try
to take care of the community by:

Donating many thousands of dollars worth of IP in the form of:

         ECPG (additions to)

Donating extremely valuable time and resources:

	Free Support (IRC, Mailing Lists)
	Free Bandwidth (Relay of mailing lists)
	Arranging for the OSCON Booth	

Direct monetary contributions (Which I won't mention to whom).

PgSQL, Inc. does many of the same things including hosting 98% of the 
bandwidth and servers for the PostgreSQL Project.

RedHat by the extreme liberties of Tom Lane (bow to the buddha)

Afilias by Slony and Jan (and Andrew I think)

SRA -- Tatsuo Ishii

In return we "hope" that the community will help take care of us, so we
can continue to provide these resources.

I am not saying that the project should go gone how about commercial 
products, but helping increase the visibility of major contributing
companies/products/projects will only HELP the community.
