It is good time for you, start 16th distro, maintain it, and become famous. :)
I don't think that is slowing down, and I'm sure community shouldn't work on
one stable distro, just because software is more important. As for me I think
classic distros maintainers(from Debian to Gentoo) should work on maintaining
SHR/FSO/OM projects, because they have much more experience and resources to
maintain software, and devs should developing.
I'm using some not-very-latest SHR-testing, it is stable enough for me to use
it as every day phone, and read IRC in subway.
And it is fun, results not so fun as process, so you can start effort smth,
and you will be more lucky. :)
