This is an important point. How do we deal with this?

a) have a persona which is a developer for a corporation who also works
on free software in his spare time;
b) argue that the requirements are pretty similar in one or all areas,
and so we don't need separate personas
c) have parallel sets of personas for closed vs open development


I think there are some differences. For example, the manager-type
persona isn't a big feature of open projects and, when he is, the
requirements are generally the same as for closed projects.

So perhaps it's just for developers that there's a difference, and the
difference is that developers of open projects tend to use multiple
Bugzilla installations, whereas developers of closed projects will
usually just use one, or multiple extremely similar ones.
