You're right. It was also it increase the user base, which it did 
considerably, so that LC would become better known and accepted 
generally. As you say, the move to open source was also meant to allow 
others to contribute to the engine so that fixes and new features would 
be incorporated more quickly. Unfortunately that hasn't been the case; 
except for a few skilled people (actually I can only think of two 
offhand) the community has not done much there.

I've contributed a tiny little bit to fix an IDE bug but that's about as 
far as my own skills go.
