Not really. If someone says 'what can i do right now to help make X 
happen' and gets a response 'do this please' - a fair response would be 
'i'd rather do things like Z or A, and not this;'. I dont think a 
response along the lines of 'I want my name in the list, I would like 
early access' but am willing to do nothing to help is fair. Either open 
source or otherwise.

To me, the idea of commuting to something is committing to something. If 
you dont have the time or resource or willingness to really help, don't 
waste other peoples time.

its not an attack at all, its where things stand. Besides, Morten and I 
have had this conversation in the past as well.
