Hello! For what's worth since at the moment I'm a spectator and sometimes comments maker, I agree.
Once when trying to build a kernel that was closer to the term unique rather then the generic one that normally traveled with one of my systems, I came across references to certain items that had Google's fingerprints on it. I asked about it here, and sure enough the response was that it was invented for the Google servers, and was sent as contribution to the Linux Kernel community.
I wasn't able to make my unique kernel work, but it was an interesting job.
And I'm still interested in figuring out further how I can contribute to this particular example of software running hardware properly. ----- Gregg C Levine email@example.com "This signature fought the Time Wars, time and again."

I disagree. I do think it means that the project isn't fitting its contributors so well. Note that I am explicitly not saying and not thinking that it is a failure of any contributor.
If you have some idea, then propose it. Best to propose something then just say "this is wrong".
If the project could change to work somehow differently and that would help contributors then I think that's something we should consider identifying and doing.
who is the "we" here? Who identifies, and what do they do? And how do you manage the fact that companies may do development that for a number of reasons can not be released immediately?
It's a natural consequence of the fact that companies can't always immediately push all their work upstream.
What's the difference from Linux kernel development again?
Nothing. Most companies I know of that use Linux, and contribute to upstream, deal with the issue of upstream vs. what is done in the company and the time delay involved. They have the same time delta issue with their internal patches vs. upstream. So we're not different.
