Open source projects take all kinds well, some do

Not every open source project lead agrees with Rich Felker, founder of the Musl project. As I covered recently, Felker puts a premium on users of Musl, even more than those that contribute code: The users, the testers, the adopters, the bug reporters [are] so much more valuable than writing any code.
But dont misunderstand him. Felker adds that even users who contribute back no code or bug fixes, or anything at all, are still valuable. Thats because they create demand that pushes other software to interoperate, and may fix interoperability with other software even if we never see it.
