[Foundation-l] Why is the software out of reach of the community?

There cannot be community consensus if the developers are unwilling to
seriously consider alternate technological solutions to the ones they come
up with. That is a key piece of the broken process -- developers of SMW have
presented their ideas to the community, but whether or not there was ever
consensus (or could have been consensus) has not mattered since the
developers were unwilling to give the software  serious look. In other
words, there has been a chilling effect. Why bother going to as many people
as you can for input if that input will make no difference?
