What hapens in other Open Source projects is that someone
gets _really_ frustrated and also happens to have some free time
so he copies the current code into his own CVS system and runs
with it. If he does a good job user follow.
I imagine that if someone were to take the current code, apply
all the patches there are out there, test it with a beta program
and then documet the features no one would bother using Digium's
CVS system any more - they'd go for the "stable" tar file.
Most people I think feel it is easier to put up with the current
situation then to step forward the take on the job of "doing it
right". It would take a lot of time.
I can envision someone wanting to run a company that did mostly
Asterisk consulting wanting to take on this job. being the place
"everyone" goes to get the slick-packaged Asterisk code would get
them a reputation and a leg up on the other Asterisk consulting
companies. But as above, It would take a lot of time.
