How to encourage people to do the right thing is an important question.
Linux distributions do have a little bit of pull with the developers.
It is not exactly like the developers don't get *anything* out of the

pixels on a zillion computer screens.  More if they write that manpage
and fill in the AUTHORS section. ;-)
