That just means that we haven't improved in a very long time. :\

I disagree. I do think it means that the project isn't fitting its
contributors so well. Note that I am explicitly not saying and not
thinking that it is a failure of any contributor.

If the project could change to work somehow differently and that
would help contributors then I think that's something we should
consider identifying and doing.

What's the difference from Linux kernel development again?

I don't think expectations are too usefule but I think it's what we
should strive towards?
