Ask HN: Do you get paid to contribute to a open source project?

I’ve been considering putting in the effort to get up to speed with a major project like Chromium or Firefox.

Ideally, if I am going to put in the massive amount of effort, I’d like to at least have the potential to get paid for the effort. Let me stress, getting paid is not the primary reason. I learn code bases and write code because I love the art.

Any advice from serious open source contributors?
