No obligations, but in this case you have the tools, you have the sources and you have the engagement that drives me to hope that you’re going to play a more active part in bringing forward this client. E.g. by submitting detailed error reports, by submitting patches, by providing better artwork, writing better documentation, designing a better user experience, …
