I would, if
- it's only a small contribution (few-liner fix etc)
- it's a feature i need, and i want it to be in the cvs
- i know that the money they (the developers, not "someone else") receive
is all spent on the development (buying server hardware/hosting, hardware
for developers, documents (ieee/iso standards, chip specs...) etc)
don't worry, it won't be spent on malaysian bitches for gabucino :)
Anyway contributions to core is very rare, and even then it's either a
big cosmetics mess or something broken code :)
Most contributions are plugins/modules, ie. new codecs, demuxers, vo
drivers, filters, and they may be single-licensed too.
(ie license buyers are not allowed to use them in closed code)
Although i vote for dual-licensing as much as possible.
