I submit patches to "scratch an itch" for software I use. For some reason, almost all the patches seem to be Emacs related. Currently, most patches are to Gnus. I'm most known for maintaining AUC TeX, but have now passed that job to David Kastrup. The most significant contribution to Emacs proper is the customize facility, and one of the few thing I did because it "needed to be done", even though I didn't need it myself.
A long time ago, I wrote Myth, a multiplayer roguelike game. It was written with CFRONT 1.2, as my first C++ project. I learned a lot about programming, but as a game it stinks.
I get my salary from developing Daisy, an agricultural simulation model. It is free software, but hardly something that will interest the community. However, it is an example of why free software doesn't mean programmers will starve. The various agencies who finance Daisy do so because they need it, not because they intent to make money on selling it.
