You are introducing a dichotomy users/developers that doesn't make
sense. OpenBSD developers are _users_ who happen to have the
ability, time, and motivation to contribute back to the project.
Anybody can become a developer. (In fact, judging from my own
experience, the project will rip them from the cradle.) There's no
"us" and "them" outside of your rhetorics.
