What kind of PR does it take to foster and maintain this kind of dedication? None of the 1,076 developers were paid to write code and the project lasted 15 years.

There are questions here that should be answered. How come the effort didn't fall apart after a year or two? Who sustained it? Who kept the code writers organized over that period and the code itself? What was the underlying cause that pushed these people to keep going on the project even if it might have passed its time?

Actions like this are reminders that money and self-interest aren't the only motivators in the world.
