And who do you get to maintain all the new tests and buildbots you
spawn from running hundreds of community projects unittests? How do
you know those tests are real, and actually work? You quickly outstrip
the ability of the core team to stay on top of it, and you run into
issues in the past akin to the community build bots project.
