Submission + - Mozilla Leader Makes $500k/year

samuel4242 writes: The NY Times reports that the Mozilla Foundation is paying Mitchell Baker a cool $500,000 per year. How much went out in grants? Much less. $285,000 according to the article. Does this hurt the community by amplifying jealousy and discouraging people to contribute? Or is it only fair to compensate full time contributors at a rate that is in the same ball park as the other Silicon Valley success stories? Now that MySQL is rumored to be moving toward a big IPO, how will the open source world handle the growing gap between the insiders and the casual contributors?
