Who is going to staff this team?

I think a large reason that we are in the situation we are in is due to 
the fact that large corp can't see the importance of paying salaries for 
people to help others and keep things clean and tidy. They will foot the 
bill for building the thing, they tend to be reluctant to pay to keep 
things tidy and well maintained.

I'm not saying it isn't a good idea. I felt the work was very valuable 
when I did it and I thought the community appreciated it a lot. But for 
the last year I have not had the benefit of an employer who feels there 
is enough value in this approach to pay my salary to do the work.

Would be glad to be proven wrong.
