Or maybe it's not that they don't care, but that they don't care about end users.
It's the FOSS plague (here come the down votes). Software projects written because they interest the developers, or simply in the way the developers find pleasing in some way. The ordinary user isn't so much a consideration because were not the motivation to write the thing in the first place. And any suggestion that an approach or feature may not be the best way forward is ignored, or worse, users with helpful suggestions are told if they don't like the way that it is they can fork it; except most of us users can't. maybe because we're not coders, or because starting to understand that programme from the outside is beyond us, or we don't have the skills for something as complex as that and so forth.
