...that's why I prefer google code which is more project-oriented
rather than user-oriented, plus github pages look all the same, and...
but I'm getting offtopic.

I'm after something more palpable - someone giving my little project a
chance in a real-life project, ultimately bringing it to a whole new
level of quality (that is, if that someone isn't already me). But to
get there, I have to give a good impression first. I can't expect
someone writing documentation/tutorial for my project when it's from
that that one gets to know the project in the first place. It's like
expecting the client to market your product for you.
