Does it?   For example, a college professor might work on scipy as part 
of his job in order to add needed functionality.  Do they count as a 
professional developer, even if they don't code for a living?

A person that writes code for a living might work on scipy in his spare 
time.  Does that make them not a professional developer of scipy?

A person might be unemployed, and so work a lot on scipy, as much as a 
regular job.  Does that make them a "professional" or a "hobbyist"?

Thanks,

Jason
