I feel this is an excellent discussion. 

I'm curious how folks think maintenance and enhancement of open source software jives with anti-gentrification efforts. Has this been studied? Does anyone have experience with the two together? 

Also, I assume all are welcome to attend the proposed office hours, meaning not exclusive to only thoes with a service contract. Bryan, is this the case and where can one go to discover the time and place of these sessions?
