Hopefully uncontroversial opinion: Community driven projects must at some point prioritize the mental health and satisfaction of their contributors over their users.

Yes, user focus is important in that there's little point in having a public project without users. But without contributors you don't have a project at all.

This is something many projects struggle with as they scale up: Early in life these are the same people and there's no conflict between them. As any project of any kind becomes more successful a community of purely users develops and soon vastly out numbers contributors.
