Also extremely frustrating for a developer who has 84 pages of LTSP
documentation who keeps asking for someone to help him package it, but keeps
only hearing the "sounds of silence".

To be expected, however.  I'm beginning to beleive that Free Software itself is
an unworkable concept.  When I started getting involved (back in 1985 or so),
there was a tacit understanding that I was here to solve my problems, and *you*
were here to solve *your* problems, and wouldn't it be *cool* if we both worked
*together*, and hey look at what we did!

Now, the vast majority of people feel that filing a 1 line bug report ("IT DONT
WORK WHY WONT YOU GUZ FIX IT LOL!!!111one") is the limit of their need for
involvement.  After all, it's *somebody else's* job to make all this stuff
work, right?
