The availability of development time is under absolutely no control or
hardly exhibits any predictability in this project due to lack of
commitment. To make matters worse, expertise in VLC development is hardly
transferrable, as opposed to boy scouting. With these constraints in mind,
time-boxing or agile methods (adjusting release features according to time)
are futile, as are feature roadmaps or waterfall planning (adjusting
release time according to features).

As the saying goes, madness is the belief that same causes will lead to
different consequences.

I consider the topic closed until someone addresses the lack of
commitment. Wishful thinking about community involvement does not count.
