I don't know.  How do you get to be on the Linux core team?  Or Apache?
Or XFree86?  It's the same idea, really.

As I said, it's their own fault for not helping.  I don't write documents
for the LDP to make money or get my name in lights.  I do it to present
information easily to someone else.  If you want to make money,
go write for a magazine or write a book (yes, I do both).

That's why some automated system has to be set up instead of everyone
squabbling about how person X doesn't respond to their e-mail.
