Well from the linked thread it reads like this bloke threw a 
tantrum because the foundation politely refused to pay for 
commits pushed to Github when there was no prior agreement or 
even discussion about monetizing the work before it was carried 
out. The foundation also gave valid legal concerns as to why they 
would not pay for the work.

I wonder how this would go down at LLVM, Rust, FreeBSD, Qt or 
better yet the linux kernel. Submit some PRs, get them merged 
then turn around and ask for money for your work. Give it a try 
and let us know :-)
