I can tell you exactly what my problem is.  The tools are terrible.  In 
projects with a useful issue tracking system I can take small chunks

lists all the time to even know where things are, let alone do anything 
about them.  Moreover, it doesn't help that you need to have a 
high-speed internet connection or a superfast disk to do any effective 
work with the version control system.
