Hi Christian,

This is all good and well, and something I support.  Unfortunately it is
not as straight forward as it seems.  We have many unmaintained apps,
and a few over worked devs.

Bugs sit there until someone has time to look at them.

Patches don't get applied cos someone has to review, test and apply them.
