Christopher Faylor is an invaluable part of this project, but his complaining
about lack of developers adds no value.

If you do what you have always done, you will get what you always got.
If Christopher wants to gripe on the mailing that his business, but he and
everyone else need to get realisic about the fact that not everyone is willing
to use a 20 year CVS. People criticize my suggestion as not a guaranteed fix.
Well guess what, nothing is a guaranteed fix for hard problems such as this. How
do you encourage more people to contribute? well you can start by making it
easier for them, which is what I am proposing.
