The question wasn't about participation but about responsibility.

Right. Because nobody from the Squeak community took on that task,
yet, so there's nobody you could have "helped". Also, there was no
"decision" yet that Tweak actually should replace Morphic. There are
many cool features in Tweak, I personally like its ideas a lot, but
there are also people who dislike it for various reasons. The first
step would be that more people from the community actually try to do
something serious in Tweak. Only then could you estimate if it is
actually worth-while to switch to Tweak as the default UI.
Also, mind you, it took Morphic quite some time until it became the
default UI. Several people worked full-time on it. That's also a
reason why the "Tweak developers" don't take on such a task lightly.

Lighten up you french guys, you're gonna win the soccer world cup,
Seriously, if someone came up with the idea to switch to Qt (just to
name some UI), would you expect the Qt developers to lead that effort?
