you seem to believe that all useful open source code in the world is written as
part of a well organised project that makes use of all known good practices.
This is simply not true. In my field (research in physics), open source code
sometimes means somebody's in-house tool that he put on the internet at the end
of his PhD. This means no support, little documentation, and definitely no
"tests at source code checkin time". Still, it can be the best tool in its
specialized field. And I want to be able to debug it if needed.

just my 2 cents,
