If you look around the forum here you’ll see a lot of the projects and have contributors that are non coders. I mean yes a program needs to be coded but it also needs the idea developed, refined, art to be made, the program to be tested, more ideas to be proposed, visualizations to be done, logic to be worked out, brainstorming, documentation to be written, translations to be done, UX engineers, music possibly to be composed, all kinds of stuff. So I guess my question comes down to is do the non coding project contributors get credit for their work and if so how? I mean it’s not THAT important but it’s kind of important given that project developers in maidsafe get a percentage of all safecoin generated if their project is used and becomes popular. And THEREFORE do the noncoders who participated get credit, and a cut of that? Or are the programmers essentially exploiting the non programmers for free labor and brains?
I mean as I said I don’t care that much, I’d help various projects anyway but I can see how this could escalate into a clear class distinction and power dynamic as things go on.
