Please take note that this is how your actions appeared to others.
Dismissive and judgemental of the needs of current contributors.

As context: Trying the L4-switch hindered and delayed development a lot
in the past. Anyone wanting help in trying it again therefore needs to
show that this is actually viable.

One the one hand this is true: Curated resources make it easier to work.
On the other hand, the current contributors aren’t the best people to do
that, and curating resources takes a lot of time that then cannot be
spent for their own development tasks.

In short: Yes, there’s a need for that. Are you the one who will take it
up to curate the resources without breaking what already exists?
