Note the word "volunteers" = they want it for free.
It was a long discussion around it on the classic computer list. I
didn't read it all but it seems like the standard "if it ain't broken
don't fix it" - until it's broken and then you need it fixed yesterday
and for free since you never made a budget for to take care of it.

A bit like "why have a fire department if it's no fires".
