I'm not sure what your subject line was about, but just as a caveat:
Talking about legal things (like licensing) is something frowned upon -
most of us won't touch that subject (we leave it to our lawyers) & will
discourage anyone else from doing so for similar reasons.

a support contract in general - yep, that's basically how it is here. Most
of the community get paid to work on this for our own customers/needs -
while we work with other community members to make sure our work doesn't
collide, is hopefully collaborative, etc, that's mostly what open source

As someone else pointed out, there's relatively few people who know about
this sort of thing.
