Mozilla and FreeS/WAN are both projects which have by their existence discouraged people from working on alternatives but barely shipped themselves. Criticism can't be brushed off with the excuse 'I'm not getting paid for this, buzz off'. Often we'd be better off without free contributions.
People are too politic about starting or contributing to new free software projects which compete with an existing one. Leadership incompetence and unpleasantness are valid reasons for starting an alternative, and we shouldn't be afraid of giving the real reasons for such splits. Pretending problems don't exist doesn't make them better, and the nice part of not getting paid is the emperor can't fire you for criticising his wardrobe.
BitTorrent shrugged off another load test. We need to try distributing a gigabyte-size file.
