Why is this so? It would be interesting to see how the OpenBSD project has
"grown" over the last few years in terms of $$ and competent developer
support. Since the developers are in it for themselves, "growth" isn't a
goal, nor is it necessary.

Do you think that a newbie would be good at documentation?

You haven't searched the archives for the "feature requests" posted to the
list. The standard reponse to the "how can I help" or "can we get feature
X" questions is "Submit a patch". Submitting a patch is how you can
contribute in a non-financial way. Giving good advice to those who have
done their homework on the mailing lists is another. Buying CDs should be
something everyone does.
