Stabilizing webpack 3 (week 18–19)
Tobias Koppers

I love this. And this is exactly what I was gonna recommend — you set the payment rules. That way developers don’t think they are getting low balled because they were afraid to ask for more. After all if it was our list prices, it would be far higher. Conversely, if it wasn’t open source it would be of less value to contributors in other ways.

So this eliminates unnecessary friction so we can focus on work should we choose. And knowing there is money and possibly even a future making money with webpack means we can take this more seriously and devote more time to understanding the codebase. Super excited!
