Generally it is larger integrators and developers with larger customers funding those who don't want to pay for anything. Their migration timelines are naturally slower than the little free bunch who want everything for nothing yesterday. If there are modules you need migrated, either fund it or do it. Complaining is pointless.
But nevertheless i believe the above is a stupid, community unfriendly argumentation that goes very much against the gist of open source.
I am still a freshman so my impression might be due to my ignorance. But I fail to find a strong community of developers that together with a "benevolent dictator" (aka fabien/odoo sa) analyzes the needs of the market and collectively create the needed tools.
It is an ESSENTIAL part of the open source philosophy, that you can benefit from its wealth WITHOUT contributing to it.
This said, I believe that the andis of this world are an important part of both the OO- and the odoo-community.
