That would be fine in our case, *if* we could work on them  
concurrently, but there is so much cruft in dealing with the build  
environment - and too many forks in the details - that it makes it  
very unproductive to try to contribute.

If we could get a list of people who are the *main* developers  
responsible for the contributions in the image, and if those people  
would then tell us other developers, reliably, how to catch up and  
keep up with them with regards to code changes and build environments,  
and if there were a few reliably sync'ed images produced that we 3rd  
party developers could verify our own local results against, this  
situation will change.
