don't think that I am so stupid but we have enough things to do where
people without development skills can help and can do something.

And please don't generalize this, we talked with extension developers.
There are of course different groups of extension developers, with
different skill levels.

For me it's a difference if somebody who don't have the skills but shows
interest and ask the right questions or if somebody complain and request
that things get be done.

I hope we always have a bigger user base than active community members.
Otherwise it would be a bad ratio but I agree that we could benefit fro
more volunteers in all areas.

Nobody say that anybody should shut up.

We talk here about one specific case and not in general. Really anybody
interested could have started on the communication part.
