How do you force volunteers to do anything? I assume you have the money
or the blackmail to do so?

See, in my eyes, the main point of stable is to provide a snapshot
for those dependent on CD, a stable system for servers and an 
installation tool for the rest of us. Maybe the developers don't
care about stable much because it doesn't matter much to them. Again,
we go back to the forcing volunteers above.
