This may affect Perl development in the future and therefore I thought it would not be entirely off-topic in this forum.
Some time ago I was in a discussion with a number of fellow Perl Mongers about whether the money that some organizations spend on funding Open Source Projects would be better spent on funding developers in "developing" countries (low-wage countries) rather than funding developers in the "developed countries" (high-wage countries). The idea being that Open Source Initiatives would get more "bang for the buck" funding a "cheap" developer in a "developing" country than that they would funding an "expensive" developer in the "developed" world.
I'm at odds with this: on the one hand I think it would be good. On the other hand I think we're taking advantage of people in the "low-wage" countries. But who am I to decide that? People in what we consider "low-wage" countries would consider the wage that they're being paid quite high. Especially related to the cost of living in a "low-wage" country.
So I wonder what Perl Monks think about this issue?
