*IF* I were paid I would agree. What it comes down to with many of us is
we find a niche we care about and work on that. That work benefits users
of those packages.
What this touches on for me is my long-time feeling that for Ubuntu to
continue to be sustainable many more of us need to be paid
maintainers/developers. There's a list of at least 10 people I know that
should be paid to maintain Universe. Until that or something like it
happens Kevin, you simple can't demand the types of things you suggest
Also this is a conversation (like many) that just doesn't work on a ML.
