With all do respect Roy, there are sufficient volunteers to accept THIS
project into Apache.  There are not ever going to be sufficient volunteers
to accept "projects" into Apache.  No amount of social engineering or
chastising will change this.  An alternative would be to adapt structures
which support the social patterns of the community rather than trying to
change the social patterns of the community.  We've tried the latter up
until now.
