Thank you for adding to the drama. Really appreciate it.
I'd like to set the record straight, immediately:
1. We value initiative, over supposition and "waiting for someone else to do it."
2. See 1.
3. We value any and all contributions of code, documentation, and support. The issue isn't that contributions are being turned down, it's that we have a lack of contributions to enrich our pool of knowledge, code, and support. This fear of not having contributions valued, is unfounded.
What we need, are people who actually just get in to prove their points.
Far too often, we have people who come into this community, wanting to be "served" their features, or wanting to take managerial positions, "You should do this, and this, and this, and this." without talking to the people actually contributing code, and trying to fix bugs, to get a clear indication of what's actually happen.
