Member since:

why is Debian taking up projects like this? I was under the impression that they were already short handed

Simply, because Debian doesn't have a management that decides what developers have to work at. Luckily, some developers are drawn to fixing whatever needs fixing most. Others on the other hand like to do obscure-but-fun projects like this one. And I think it's gread that Debian supports them, too.

and were losing users and developers in droves because they couldn't keep their system up-to-date.

These reports sounded greatly exaggerated and loosely founded to me.
