It would be nice to see some more traffic on this list, as the one other
game-related list (opengl-gamedev) I know of is just about Windows games.

Maybe this list reflects the general state of open source game development
on Linux? Many games are started and developed until 50% complete, then
they collapse. Is it a matter of too eager and unskilled developers,
unrealistic projects, lack of time, immature tools, bad libraries, lousy
hardware support, horribly complex installation issues, or what? Why does
Linux not have as healthy an underground gaming scene as other platforms?
