Also, it's bound to become a serious problem from a political and a technical point of view. I recently discussed this elsewhere, also in the context of WordPress < http://tinyurl.com/s7kbt >. The sooner people get choice, the better, IMHO. Transparency is among one of WP's selling points. *smile*

There is no conspiracy. Make it happen. Check in with the people that previously volunteered. Co-ordinate the project.

I  was going to mention the (hypothetical) possibility of  dedicating an
unstable dev branch for  something like this--one whose  sole purpose is
interoperability (maybe even MAMP and WAMP). If it struggles to progress,
not all is lost.

I just don't get people talking about things and not making them
happen. You have to be the change you want to see in this world.

1. Write the code
2. Make the code available
3. Have people test the code
4. If the code is ready, find people that find it useful
5. Rince
6. Repeat

And if more developers are needed, take the Slashdot (subculture) approach:

1. Get pile of dirty underwear (for rinsing)
2. Send it somewhere up north, along with code
3. Somewhere up north, code makes programmer
4. ???
5. Profit!

Hmmm... In hindsight, it's too dense. Now my brain hurts...
