It's dynamic. With the introduction of nonGNU we saw packages "coming
home" and being available out of the box without the legal hurdle. One
such example is magit. It's nice; you can think of melpa, nongnu, elpa
and core as tiers for contributors' involvement. People do what they
feel comfortable with in terms of time, patient and effort and EVERY
contribution is appreciated, and made with love, as you said.
