Of course:

All that I have received related to my work on FFmpeg is:

- coverage of my expanses to attend the VDD;

- some t-shirts and a few goodies.

The money that I would have received for mentoring in GSoC 2015 was
given to the project.

Note that I do not make a point of pride of not having gotten much of
street value from my work on this project, this is not the reason I do
it. But you asked.

And to prove I really do not consider this a matter of privacy, I can
add my income from not-FFmpeg related: I am a public servant of the
French Éducation nationale in the PRAG corps at the salary step 9 with
as little overtime as accepted (0-2 hours depending on the year) plus
one hour of oral interrogation in prépa and a few yearly hours of
coordination with a project. The monetary amounts for all this is of
public record.

And who will do the challenging, since we already do not have enough
time to review the patches in the first place?
