I admire that.

There are open source projects that achieve high quality in distributed 
manner. So probably it is not the only way.

Probably for subprojects like yaypm which does not have a nature of one 
file patch a branch in cvs can be created. You can give trusted people 
access to certain directory. Then you can update main branch with the 
files you like. That would allow more people to cooperate on, for 
example yaypm code.

Developing without code repository is frustrating I must say. Developing 
open source software is impossible.

That is selffulfiling prophesy. You won't have thriving community unless 
you expect it to develop outside.

Of course I can write more documentation. It is a matter of compilation 
mainly.
