BTW, I quite like "Supporters".

I'd feel deeply uncomfortable with insisting on a policy that put my name
on a particular section of the website just because I do a bit of (very
dull) procedural XEP writing in the evenings sometimes. :-)

The reason I think companies putting staff hours into the XSF is the issue
is that currently they're doing this without any reward - there's very
little incentive for them to do this. As it happens, the organizations that
do this seem happy to keep on doing it, as far as I can tell, but I'd be
happier if this were a better deal for them.
