If the problem is that there are not enough core developers in Mythtv, 
then what is being done to recruit and train new ones?

I browsed the website, SVN, and wiki, and I see no documentation about 
"How to become a core dev".  Not even a list of who the core devs are 
nor tales of their heroic hacks.  Is everyone listed in the AUTHORS file 
still active? I would have assumed Mr. Dean was a core developer had it 
not been mentioned above.
