yep, that seems to be the new model

"let's take stuff other people wrote, glue it together, and make money off it"

In this case a Webserver, and some RA-like crap.

the people doing this type of things arne't contributing to the scene at all, quite the opposite, they're taking much needed users and donations from where they're actually needed and also putting out a message that you don't need to know a thing about emulation to be the 'most popular emulator' which also means the number of people investing time in learning how to actually develop emulators goes down too.

Again, this is one of about 50 reasons why I keep saying things like RA, and that model are just parasites, intentionally or otherwise.
