Did you contribute back when it was up to date?  Or do you contribute now
based on all the other features you find useful in FreeBSD?

So you won't write code, you won't donate money, but constantly complain
about it.  I guess I fail to see the logic in your basic business model.

I've donated fairly regularly, and things I've requested like HA and XEN
support are at least partially here now.  If you're in the US your donations
are tax deductible, at least monetary donations are, so there is even less
argument against donations.
