I've noticed the same thing, and agree with your thoughts. And I'd better
say first that I'm one of the worst, contributing for a day or two, then
disappearing ( well, lurking ) for the rest of the month. 

The mailing list seems to have plenty of practical, admin people who have
problems to fix and are willing to share solutions with other people. What
we are missing the C++ programmers (ideally a team) who are happy to delve
into the code and produce patches, workrounds - even just to tell us what
the existing code actually does ( a recent thread in the list ).

The answer? I dunno. Somehow we need to encourage other people onto the 
list. Perhaps documentation of the source code to make easier for someone
new to get to grips with it ? Anyone else got any ideas ?

Just my 2 cents worth...
