I agree, I think AJ and the core Wine developers are overloaded and maybe 
close to burn out.
So they don't have the energy to build a welcoming developer community.
As wineHQ is not a welcoming as it could be, the community does not grow, so 
they are not many new developers that can help the share the workload.
So the core Wine developers are overloaded and we sadly close the circle :(

I have an idea to help AJ, but it might be a bit too "heretic":

-Give commit access to more people

For example I'd presume Henri and Stefan could be trusted with all the d3d 
stuff, and others with other parts.

-  AJ would have more time for other important activities.
- more people can give the final feedback if a patch is accepted or rejected


PS: Just some facts about me. I'm not a wine developer(yet). I tried a bit 
earlier this year. My patches/messages didn't receive much feedback which I 
can understand giving the workload of the people here, so I kind of gave up.. 
But I would still like to hack on wine.
