Rodrigo, this type of personal comment is unjustified and very inappropriate
IMHO. It's not fair at all to judge people's personal involvement based on
whom they work for. If you'd work at nights and week-ends after your job to
backport bugfixes, you'd know what I'm talking about. BTW, one day you may
notice that the most personally involved ones *finally* get a job at a Linux
vendor's, and not the reverse.

So please take care of not dismissing what people do on their own time, and
try be kind enough to bring problems to them directly if any.
