It seems everyone loves creating packages and releasing them as open-source. I understand the appeal, it’s much easier to release something this way as it lets you wash your hands of a lot of the responsibility.
Need a bug fixed, send a PR or GTFO. Have some questions about how to do something, hopefully, Stack Overflow can help you.
Of course, this is merely a caricature of some maintainers, and then you have others that are super responsive and are happy to help you use their package.
If you are one of the second groups that are responsive to support and community engagement then I’d love for more of you to consider making future packages commercial. Granted it’s probably not going to be as easy as just pushing up a repo, but we have tools available now like gitstore that makes this easier than ever before.
