Ok, that's probably true. They are almost always of the form "please add 
a link", or "this link is broken". We almost never get improvements, 
additions or new content. The current team doesn't do that *either*, we 
are pretty much in a 'maintenance-only' mode - and as discussed the 
barrier / requirements for getting new contributors are high.

All the best,
