I don't want to nit-pick too much, but I would argue that
many of the people on this list put significant time and
effort into finding ways to improve OTP, and sometimes even
handing you components *for free* that can be added to OTP
with a fairly small effort on your part.

So your argument may just as well be reversed. ;)

I think much of this boils down to the issue of providing
feedback about what is actually going on, which ideas are
rejected because they're not good enough (and why!), which
ideas are basically accepted, but not implemented due to
time and resource constraints (and then how others may help)
