If I contribute to a project, I want to test my code somewhat so that 90% of the response isn't bug reports and negativity. That means I'm going to be refactoring. And that means I'm going to add new features.

Now when I drop the bomb, I can look forward to thank you's instead of what the hell's. And what's wrong with that?

After all, an open source project will never happen if you expect everyone to be doing it exactly like you want. You have to let them contribute at their own pace, it isn't a job!
