You're cherry picking your quotes:

In order for Roundup to be considered equivalent in terms of an overall
tracker package there needs to be a sufficient number of volunteer admins
(roughly 6 - 10 people) who can help set up and maintain the Roundup

This is *NOT* a perfectly reasonable offer, because you do not see 6-10 people
stepping up at the same time for almost *anything* in the open source world.
