Yup, I was one of them..
I was tired of fighting my patch up the issue queue for months. Also
the lack of interest of a core committer, for answering some simple
questions (what is wrong with this patch? Why isn't this committed
yet?) closed the door for me. Now, after 1,5 year without drupal I am
trying to get up to speed again. Mainly because the file system has
been improved, and because of the fact that I wan;t to participate in
the image API overhaul.
Seriously, almost 60-70% of the core modules, i have never used or
only used to scratch my own itch.
The motto "talk is silver, code is gold" has died a long time ago imo,
when drupal got more commercial. Now, whenever I look at the
drupal.org homepage, drupal.org is being (ab)used for asking people
money for some conference, or whatever else..
Drupal isn't the drupal anymore which I *loved* so much in the past.
It is grown up, and made to be a money making machine.
In my opinion, that is truly a very very sad fact. (Even when it isn't
a fact, it's sad people are getting the feeling that this is the case)
