I think that this is important that you start to build an intellectual
cocoon for your PhD. So I understand your redraw.
I really appreciated what you did in the past and I'm sure that there
are other ways to bring energy in the community. :)
We will work on them. I will continue my low-volume harvester
activities and hope that some people having interest in squeak can
allocate a bit of their time in Squeak.
