Apropos retoot:

I’ve seen a few posts recently about FOSS burnout, where the act of maintenance becomes a heavy burden.

Like you could potentially argue that the ‘free rider’ problem (noting that I don’t like that term…) in FOSS could be people leaving poorly specified bug reports, angry comments when something doesn’t work, etc. Using up developer-time/energy, which is a subtractible resource, even if the end product isn’t.

So there would be a need for governance rules to mitigate that.
