Re: Beat them at their own game!

said by camelot:

Engineers do not, and will not volunteer.

Many engineers might volunteer (fostering social/community progress is supposed to be a core value for professional engineers) but the amount of time they can afford to spare for it would be insignificant next to the scale of this sort of project.

The biggest problem with part-timers is that between volunteering days, full-time engineers would likely advance files far enough that part-timers would spend most of their time simply catching up with everything that has happened since their last visit.
