Do you want to work on free and open source software as a full-time job? People ask me all the time how to find companies who might hire you for this, and I share this command line snippet:
git log -n100000 --format="%ae" | cut -d@ -f2 | sort -u | less
This will produce a list of email domains who are committing in a given git repo, which often corresponds pretty closely with the list of companies willing to hire you to work on that project and others like it.
@sir Wow, didn't know Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo were such active contributors in the FLOSS community. :)
@sir thank you, this rules.
@sir this is awesome thanks!
@sir should probably patch git for this capability
$ git hired
git: 'hired' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.
I don't share your optimism:
I'm trying to get funding for #PyInstaller for more than a year now.Asked all the contributing companies, all companies I found on the mailinglist or did contact me, all companies using PyInstaller in their repos.
Not a single one is funding the work.
This is what is called sweating.
@kirschwipfel that isn't what I mean. I mean large, established projects where the primary investment is from companies - not the specific project you want to work on.
