To present a base source package that is stable, clean, easy to
understand, and fairly debugged.  It has _nothing_ to do with AD&D
compliancy.  It has nothing to do with making everyone use the source and
areas as is.

Making that change was not something that we took lightly.  Believe me on
that one.

To add stuff like Smaug, ROM, etc?  We don't want to go there.  We're out
to create a stable _basic_ package.  We don't want to have everything
under the sun in the server.  We want something basic and simple.

Not everyone wants colour, races, etc, etc.  On my own personal mud, I
only decided to add colour about 8 months ago.  I only added races a year
and a half ago.  And that was because I didn't want them before that.
Heck, I still don't like colour.  :)

Look in contrib/servers then.  People submit them.

A stable _base_ to build on.
