To a point, that is very true. However, assembling a full stack
framework where all the components are free and work well together is
not as straight-forward as it may seem. Considerable knowledge and
experience is required. If a defined free framework existed, then the
search for someone to update savannah would be more likely to succeed
because all you would then need is someone with the necessary drive and
knowledge of JS. More generally, someone wanting to create a new site
could just use the framework and have confidence that all the components
are free - so much broader benefit than just savannah.
