Some of us are. One example is how Dave not only was an important force
behind fixing bugs in recent kmod and util-linux releases, but he also
influenced changes in behaviour in those projects to our advantage.

It's up to the individual to influence things their way. For instance,
although I do not know for sure, I assume that your involvement in
Libreoffice discussions has lead to improvements in their build systems
(btw, some libreoffice guys asked about you at FOSDEM in Brussels).

There are more examples. They seem insignificant, but they're not.
