I'm happy with people reporting bugs against my open source projects. When
they come back and ask "is it done yet?", then I get mad.

"Has to" in the sense that in order to sustain standardisation, one must
write/edit standards. If you prefer to do something proprietary, then of
course you don't have to comply with the XSF's process. You can't demand
that the XSF does something and then say "but I won't do it myself, YOU
should do it".
