I've rarely seen so much controversy over a single word :) I don't
think anything has been lost from any list. Let's not use someone
else's definitions. We have known all along what contribution means.
We have known all along what the spirit of a contributor is. So lets
just keep doing things in a manner that makes sense to us. If we start
subscribing to other people's dictionaries, very soon we are going to
find out that we have changed the meaning of FOSS itself.
