Wow, this is awesome. It is cool to see a commercial venture fund
full-time resources for an open source project (other than Sun has
been) for the greater good™ especially since most web companies are
getting benefits from the products. It's probably very hard in today's
economic environment though to justify headcount unless upper
management understands the impact (and I suppose the PR it can
generate :))

Big ups to Rackspace and Mosso!
