I think that you're confusing people. «The Cathedral and The Buzzword» was 
written by ESR. Linus didn't start the Bazaar theory: ESR came up with 
that as observation (and perhaps some imagination). I don't think that the 
Linux kernel project epitomises "Bazaar"-style of development, it was 
simply an early example of very distributed development. You can't take 
that and judge it by rules that it doesn't try to follow in a game that it 
doesn't try to play.

Real bazaars are more like shopping centres than like that kumbaya idea of 
let's make a little place for everybody and everybody will be happy. It's 
not quite like 

Perhaps we could have a walk together to Marché Jean-Talon and contemplate 
how much of it can be called a Bazaar and then ask the commerçants one by 
one how much they get charged for just taking up space in the market.
