I appreciate your encouragement to share. Unfortunately, my mind is
more or less made up at the moment.
Besides the personal aspect I have for the project, leading takes a
lot of work itself. I need to write up legal agreements (not leaving
that to chance and goodwill), set up repository access rights, monitor
commits, and make sure documentation is up to date and useful.
I also can't rely on people volunteering their work to be dependable
and responsible. It has nothing to do with their caliber or devotion.
It's just that pretty much everything else in their lives will take
priority over a volunteered responsibility. So I would have to take
the time to understand all contributed code so when there's 8 hours to
release and a bug is discovered I don't have to hopelessly try to
contact the person responsible for the related code and I can fix it
myself on the spot.
All of this takes significant time away from just pure programming.
Since this project is being kept alive almost entirely by my love for
programming, going back to a leadership role is not favorable for me
at the moment.
To close, this thread is one of the popular ones on this forum so I
can tell the level of interest in contributing is well above none. I
can also appreciate that sharing could lead to permanent quality team
members and much accelerated progress. That said, I'm not prepared at
this time to deal with the logistics of sharing.
I'm a slave to reason so if you give me a compelling enough setup for
sharing I will certainly reconsider.
