Ok, lost in translation, you can't possibly think I meant there are no  
real contributors. I definitely worded that wrong and I apologize if  
you misinterpreted this.

What I won't apologize for is the seemingly naive attitude this  
project is taking about it's future and current contributions.

I would debate this issue face to face, in any open source project  
their are tiers of contribution that make the project successful. As  
it stands, where are the discussions about the project's future, I'm  
not talking about a road map here?

If you think I'm going to believe that the Apache way tells me to do  
it myself and "if you don't like it, change it.". This project is  
monolithic to change anything myself.

Please reread what I wrote about the compiler, I cannot do that myself  
and to sink time into that without others support is ridiculous from  
my perspective.

Supporting some github project is definitely where I could "if you  
don't like it, change it."
