Community based open source projects are a critical part of our industry, and most people agree that they are key enablers to innovation. What is more difficult to reconcile is how to support these projects when their maintainers have split responsibilities between the project and their regular 'day job'. When expectations are missed the results can be ugly. When expectations are clear,  maintainers can be powerful forces for good within an organization.
