It also seems to me (as an outsider) that those who do contribute are
small open-source minded companies, and that's a fairly small pool to
draw from IMO.  Perhaps there is a lot more contributions than most of
us not 'in-the-know' are aware of, but there is a reason for the
impression you mention.
