Proxmox VE is Open source - this means that the source code is available under the chosen license. Open source  does really not mean that everybody outside can tell me how to work and how to drink my daily coffee - this is a real misunderstanding. I assume you should read the license before you complain that we do not act according to our license.  

The facts:
Currently all sources are available on our ftp server, also external developers has access to our SVN and bug tracker. Beginning with the first release of 2.0 we will do changes, see the roadmap.

Yes, a lot are doing this. if you want to contribute, do it. What's the problem?

I cannot see any space for your feelings here, it's just great software and an open and fast growing community - and everybody is invited to join.
