Which developer is being asked to do something without a documented

No body with half a brain would start work on something without a
clearly defined risk/reward.

What has worked exceptionally in the Asterisk community is a list of
people who all agree in advance that they would support a small
development that whilst it may be worth $10 to each of them individually
with 50 people kicking in the application is well worth the effort.

Like I stated before, it needs a strong leadership team and possibly
that's whats missing with MythTV.
