I'm gonna sound like a broken record here, but...

Roadmaps are going to mean little without committed developer
resources. IMO, the way you get developers to tackle these big issues
is to find someone who really wants this feature and get them to code
it themselves or pay someone directly to work on it.

Altruism will get you a little productivity bump - but for me,
Subversion does most of the things that I care about. Compare that to
where SVN was when I first contributed in late 2001 - there was lots
of stuff that didn't work - but I've been around long enough now that
most of what I want is there. So, I'm quite happy with our forward
progress. *shrug* -- justin
