What kind of "thank you" would motivate you to come back more often?

How could we communicate it better that Xubuntu* is a community-driven
project and it doing well doesn't directly translate to Canonical
getting richer? Or in other words, how could we verify you are giving
back to the community (volunteer people working on Xubuntu, and anybody
using Xubuntu) – not a corporate entity that only cares about money?


* Or any flavor, really; except maybe Kubuntu, which is getting some
company funding
