The first page of the article is just plain bullshit. Your piece of software *will* attract a community if
- it is good quality
- it is something the market needs
- it can easily be found through the internet


Of course you will never find anybody to maintain crappy flawed undocumented VBScript code that does stuff only half right...


Dont make bugs in the first place, huh? Yeah sure... When feature development is freezed on a beta branch, development can still continue on the trunk of the code. Have you never used CVS? Proper testing and fixing before releasing is essential. Otherwise there will be dozends of follow up bugfix releases that confuse your users. Bad examples are out there: How many versions of Windows are there? How many versions of the Java platform?


Did you write this artice just to get slashdotted eh?
