The option I was talking about was how that can change - people can step 
up to take ownership of various components in the distro - was that not 
clear in my email ? I can try and put this into a more verbose text and 
explain how something like this might work.

sure, I dont deny that. But when there are options available for people 
to help with that, noone seems really keen on getting on board. The few 
who do are actively discouraged from doing what they can.
