I really doubt it, as far as that goes.  I've seen them come and seen
them go.  Somebody looking for kudos quickly figures out that Rosegarden
is a lot of work, and that's nothing version control can simplify.  This
thing is just complicated.

Some people like challenges.  But yeah, a lot of this stuff is so arcane that it'd be easier to start from scratch than to bother learning it all.
It's pretty cool that it works as well as it does, considering all the
things it tries to do.  Just look how you dumped audio support in your
Windows port, for example.  It saved you a lot of headaches, didn't it?

The audio support isn't dumped per se - just not ported yet.  It may well reappear if the MIDI stuff ever gets completed.  I did actually upversion RtMidi support to latest version today - took no time and that doesn't mean anything just yet but it might.
