Everybody has the ability to influence an open source project. All you have to do is to contribute. Not only source code, but bug reports, suggested enhancements etc.

Today I got this mail from the NetBeans team. And was astonished how much it had been for just one version. And ther is still more, targeted for NetBeans 7.2 version. Let’s go on 😉
