Curse that Tower of Babel! :)
I have to admit, I probably have a pretty unpopular opinion of this situation, given how unpopular my opinion on similar things with disabled people are. Namely, not everyone gets to join in, and no, that ain't always fair. The guy in a wheelchair can't come to field combat with any of my combat groups, and the guy who doesn't speak English doesn't get to participate in my development projects. Simple as that.
The development project at least is open to people who want to learn English. Which, while hard (I know I've never managed to learn any Japanese, and I can't remember a stitch of Latin or Spanish which I did learn at one point), isn't impossible, and is something those people are just going to have to accept as necessary if they want to use software written by English speaking people.
Yeah, maybe I'm an unsympathetic ass, but I just don't see much point in whining about reality.
