You're right, and the dropping of well started projects in need of more
work (like ams and zynaddsubfx) is part of this. But perhaps the reason
for such problems are to be found near the nature of open source
software: People are mainly motivated by 1) what they think is fun, 2)
what they need and 3) what can promote their ego.

Maintaining, let alone takeover of, an established project in heavy need
for an overhaul doesn't really do much for any of the above.

I often had the thought "why don't we (linux audio users) collect a
stack of money and throw them at projects that we feel needs work", I'm
personally thinking about zyn, specimen and ams. I have the feeling that
this wouldn't be considered "fair play", but apparently letting the
forces of open source software and Christmas spirit doesn't always give
us the software we like/need/hoped/hope.

I don't want more, rather I want continuous development of the excellent
things we have, to make them better in stability, usability and features.
