Summary

I am in favor of open source software, but I have a huge problem: its varying quality.  I include coding style and documentation in my definition of quality.

Intro

It would be awesome to have a huge library of high-quality open source software: one could write software so much more efficiently.  However, most people do not write good code, most do not document their code well.  This results in code that cannot be reused, and results in time wasted.

My Idea

I think it would be awesome if I were to be in charge of 5-100 software developers and could direct them in making excellent open-source software.  Of course this is just a fantasy of mine -- I highly doubt this could ever become reality.
