not everyone gets to join in, and no, that ain't always fair.
The article doesn't use the word "fair" anywhere, nor does it argue that this is an issue of fairness. What it says is:
There is no shortage of talented developers elsewhere, but they are hard to see; they do not participate in our community at anywhere near the same level. We are clearly weaker as a result.
If there are large communities of hackers that are or could be doing useful work, that isn't getting it back into mainline thanks to communication problems, then effort solving those problems could be effort well invested. And it's certainly easy to believe that this could be the case in Japan.
