I would like to propose the following postulate: given a certain number
of contributors, only a small fraction of them (for example 10%) is
actually interested in becoming a core developer and handling the
responsibilities thereof.  We cannot really increase that fraction as it
is tied to personal factors (time, motivation).

Therefore, we should strive to attract more contributors in the hope
that the number of core developers selected out of those contributors
will also increase.
