I've spent this morning reading through the ~200 replies to the topic. 
IMO the thread has devolved gracefully and I have the information I was 
looking for.

I'll make a fuller reply after I get into my article, but it's clear 
that the most pressing need is for more skilled developers. This is in 
stark contrast to the scene in 2000 - at that time virtually every 
member of LAU/LAD was a developer and/or technically involved user. Few 
of us were "just musicians". Now it looks like the musicians outnumber 
the devs, a not entirely unhappy situation, despite evident problems 
rising from the imbalance.

A great "Thank you!" to everyone who replied. For the most part the 
thread stayed on-topic, and I hope that your time was not wasted. I'll 
notify the lists when the article is published and when it's publicly 
readable (LWN subscribers get first look).
