Why not contribute? (to GCC)

I have been lurking on this list for many years, probably a decade.
I like the progress of GCC and its technology, esp. algorithms and data 
which are exciting.

Yet, I do not contribute to GCC due to my priorities in life and not due 
to any other technicality. There is family, work, graduate studies 
(where I develop new constraint solver technologies) and dancing. Too 
many things too little time. GCC is currently below the other things in 
my list.

I could have tried to change my working place and to become a paid to 
develop for GCC, but it seems to be a feat too difficult for my part 
time job. I had played with these thoughts several years ago, before 
starting my graduate studies, and I don't really remember why I stayed 
at my current working place.
