IMO that is not special to the Squeak/Pharo community. When you look at 
sourceforge or github
you will find a lot abandoned, incomplete or undocumented projects. 
Maybe it's more prominent here
because this community is orders of magnitude smaller than others. When 
you google for a
solution you typically find a bunch of hits for mainstream languages. So 
you can choose between
several alternatives and thus have a high possibility to find something 
working for you,
especially when big companies like Google are involved.
