The trick behind the quality graphics and soundtracks in Battle for Wesnoth is the following one:
Make a multi-platform software which runs natively on Macs as well as Linux and Windows. BoW managed this with the SDL library.
Linux will get you the most coders, Windows will get you beta testers, but the graphics designers and soundtrack creators seem to be mostly from the Mac crowd.
At least, that's my feeling about it.
