By popular request, here's a list of unpaid people not directly related with MorphOS development itself:
Contrary to FUD being spread around, all the people on these lists explicitely asked being put here or were asked prior to being put here.

2004-11-15: this page online
2004-11-17: Genesi is setting up a fake website claiming they own MorphOS. By doing so, they infringes on our copyright. Any version of MorphOS distributed with a new Pegasos is illegal since our contracts have not been honoured. Licenses are withdrawn
2004-11-21: Genesi is making statements on web forums implying those above amounts contain "idle time". This is untrue. Only actual work is charged
2004-11-24: a payment plan with a MorphOS 1.5 release date of 2005-01-31 was offered to Genesi who rejected it with empty threats
