The problem is that when a small number of people who have commit access to core projects screw everything up and don't fix the mess they're inflicting upon everyone, the only option left with "how open source works" is for someone to fork the code from the point where it all worked. That isn't something that should be done lightly. -- Ciaran McCreesh
