GoDaddy.com announced they were donating $10K to fund OpenSSH development as they use it as a core part of their infrastructure (more).
All the linux resellers, who sell the features of openssh said no to supporting the project.
Sun, who base SunSSH on OpenSSH, refuse to donate. Why? Because OpenSSH competes with SunSSH! Details
IBM, who sell OpenSSH support as part of multi-million dollar support contracts, tell the customers to email the OpenSSH developer list to get the free support they pay IBM for (details).
The users of OpenSSH are willing to support the project, but not the people making money out of it.
When Sun and IBM say they’re interested in OpenSource, are they interested in anything beyond profits? Maybe their actions will speak louder their silent shame.
