You are confusing the causes and the consequences here. The projects
that you are referring to can afford this kind of attitude exactly
because they are integral part of most Linux/BSD distros for decades
(not vice versa).

MFVS is not (or at least not that I know of).

Ah well, now you are calling a static man-like HTML page on your website
with a few links to the folder with the release tarballs and a publicly
accessible repo + a mailing list "a big infrastructure"?

Guess what? I'm not asking you to install Trac, or Bugzilla, or
Mediawiki, or whatever. Consider this:

Is this a lot of work? No. Is this largely enough? Yes. 

If you can't afford to spend a few hours of your time on making this up,
I'm sorry, I'm letting the others to draw the conclusions.
