It's cool man, people just undertandably can react in that way because let's face it...people nowadays love to complain and whine. This is true about everything. People whine in comments about something not being updated or fixed quickly enough, and then 2 hours later whine in comments about another app being updated and fixed too frequently.
Because somehow, it's all about them. I'm not saying that was your intention. But I will say that since I spent a small amount of time looking in the app development threads I had a better understanding of what the scenario was that explained your question. After reading a couple of the threads, I'm not very surprised that most of them are delaying releases a little while.
Here's another way of looking at it, Kit-Kat brought a lot of new features and improvements...and it even has a very significantly smaller footprint on the device. It is entirely understandable that the people who make custom ROM's, most of them who do it just for the pleasure of it, might take a little longer than we might have experienced in the past.
Personally, I'm calling it now...give it a little bit of time, and I really think the roms that are released in the future are going to be fantastic. As far as I can tell, there is literally no drawback to the current Nexus phone as it pertains to why a person would want to spend development time on it instead of another device.
That's a good thing for all of us!
