African but only in name

There is a new (for me) CMS system called Joomla. Joomla is a phonetic spelling for a Swahili word.

I thought, how cool, at last a world class Free Software project by Swahili speaking Africans.

However, I checked the biographies of the project participants. Turns out that all of them come from developed countries. Africa’s contribution is limited, in this case, to a relatively unfamiliar language, which provides cool names for projects.
