with too many inactive stakeholders and not enough active contributors.
However dedicated and passionate I am about blender and it's code, however much I would like to 'be bored to bits on this desolated island and finally have nothing else to do but stamp code', however much I would like to get ideas and my support out there, however much I would really want to finally commit my first bug fix, ... inevitably and unfortunately it is very hard to combine with full time personal/professional life (and the many other projects). Just to say that, even though sometimes we are silent and seemingly inactive, we are still actively contributing (even though maybe not in hard code) :)
