Almost 2 years ago I wrote a blog post entitled "Revenues of open source contributions".

The main reason that led me to permanently contribute back was the "just feels right" argument. What can I say? I have the Mozilla values buried deep within.

After this 2 years I can clearly identify one major benefit: recognition. Not only on the open source world, where every new project we release is followed with interest and we have a thrilling community testing, helping fixing bugs and commiting new features, but also in the enterprise world, where we're seen by customers as a very specialized and serious company. In the Pentaho Global Partner Summit our team got a recognition for all the hard work done recently, as we were awarded as the Best Community Contributor

Enough chat and back to work - we have a lot of releases coming soon, and that's what really matters. That's everyone for the support so far
