[development] Wasting time and effort

I've noticed an increasing number of "meta discussions" and I'd like to 
try to refocus our collective efforts if possible. All of these 
discussions about regulating contribution module development or only 
releasing core when the top X modules are upgraded, are more distracting 
then they are productive in my opinion. It is a dearth of labor not a 
lack of ideas that is the bottleneck of this project and almost every 
one of the issues raised could be fixed by more work in place of 
increased regulation.

The ordinary folks who review and create patches on issues are our 
lifeblood and engine. While it might not be as glorifying as 
re-imagining the contribution module ecosystem or as easy as writing an 
email, we notice and value your effort for the real contribution that it 
is. We dont need more regulation, we need more contribution. So lets 
pick up our shovels instead of our pens and get to work (myself 
included). If you don't know how and want to learn how just ask in 
channel and I'll be happy to help you personally. -mf
