Just FYI - project is in public domain for... about 2 months =))
But anyway what you've said isn't really true. But since project is still a derivation from MiST and has quite high complexity (advanced FPGA + SoC ARM + Embedded Linux + Video processing + multiple platform cores specific and all that at the same time) - it takes time to get familiar with current codebase, architecture and start bring value for the project. That will be easier for developers that worked with MiST before.
Development documentation in actual state, mostly does not exist for both MiST and MiSTer, so also takes significant time to overcome understanding issues.
Project itself also requires some side-activities:
I, personally, invested more than a month of time to bring convenient sd-card installer for Windows (that no even commercial or vendor supported projects have).
But since Sorgelig made one thing that no one previously made for such complex projects - released the whole bunch of development artifacts, including hardware as opensource - it's now possible to start contributing into the project and eventually scale.
So stay tuned. It's already one of most exciting retro-emulation platform and you won't believe what it's really capable of... just give some time
