One of the goals many early Fedora participants had was that Fedora
was to be an incubator for open source software which isn't available
as FLOSS elsewhere. The issue though is that software does not spring
up instantly from the head of Zeus fully formed. It takes years and a
lot of effort. Other things can overtake what you are working on and
just be so much larger and bigger than what is now. It can also be
that what communities want changes faster than it takes for the
software to be written.
