[texworks] TeXwork is Under-Resourced - Was: LaTeX log parser script

The assessment that TeXworks development is not moving forward as rapidly
as it could is spot-on. However, I don't know if a "governance model" is
really at the top of our list of needs at the moment. That isn't to say
that it wouldn't be beneficial to have dedicated administrative and
financial resources to draw on, but I believe our current problem is a lack
of manpower/womanpower, not a lack of organization. One needs only look at
the issue tracker to see the evidence of this---there is a long list of
tickets that are open requesting new features or bugfixes but there are no
tickets that have attached patches that fix bugs or implement features. We
have a lot of users, but few developers.

Switching to best governance model in the open source world won't make much
difference unless there are developers around to be organized and motivated
by it.
