First; thanks to both William and Rich for the great work on sup. I'm
using it full time now since I don't-really-know-anymore, there are
occasional bugs and more than a few problems with ruby 1.9 - but things
are starting to get along. Awesome work!
I just want to support the point of Christian Dietrich of perhaps adding
another maintainer/committer to be able to take some of the load when
Rich might be busy or gone for a while. I agree that it can be
de-motivating to contribute when you see the patches pile up, I imagine
it must be harder to go through the backlog as well. Still think Rich is
the man for the job thou, so he's the boss!
Best regards, Gaute
