First, I wrote something completely different.
Second, it seems to me that, in the end, an open source project like zope
proves its reason for existence by the number of people using it, and not by
the number of people contributing (though if I could, I would be delighted
to contribute).
Third, I would like to refer to what I did write.
Fourth, what is meant by 'constructive' and who decides that?

There is neither dictatorship nor censorship. Only those that participate
and contribute in an active way to the Zope community (there are lots of
possibilities) can steer and take influence.
An open-source project is neither a dictatorship nor democracy nor an
anarchy - a project lives from what each community member contributes to it.
The only purpose of measures appearing as dictatorship is bringing the
project forward. Obviously it seems to be unpopular taking over the ruder in
the same cases but it seems to be the only chance keeping thing going. If
you are interested in the future of Zope then please accept that some people
drive the project forward. We don't like being shot into the back from the
community for taking over responsibility. We all accept critic - as long as
it is constructive.
