Due to the recent news Regarding Stallman’s heart attack, I ended up on the wikipedia page for The Cathedral and the Bazaar, and I was reading the “Guidelines for creating good opensource software”. Number 3 says:
“When you lose interest in a program, your last duty to it is to hand it off to a competent successor.”
I have shirked my duty. I should have done this a long time ago. It’s not necessarily that I have lost interest, though that is part of it (I’ve gone the route of cloud music, such as spotify and google music), I really don’t have the time anymore.
Had I done this a year or two ago, I can think of a few people who would have taken the reins. Now, though, there’s hardly anyone left who has any time anymore. Perhaps everyone is going the route of cloud music, I have no idea.
Anyway, I posted a “help wanted” listing of sorts, asking for someone to step up as the team leader. We’ll see where that leads us :)
