I think the crucial question here is not what OS projects are "supposed to be" but, if we are actually interested in seeing FF/TB get more successful, what is reasonable.

Of course, the Mozilla Foundation people have all rights to do what they please and they have the "right" to come up with some crappy Extension site that is an embarrassment to to the FF project. People like me could just fork and do it better. However, given the effort and the ressources that already went into the FF/TB project and the hype around it, it would be *much* more reasonable to 1) put more effort into making the addons site better and 2) use the resources that are there from the world community more efficiently to make the addons site better.

None of the two things is at the moment happening to a significant extend and this was what I was (and still am) critisizing.
