This email is primarily to apologise for my absence over the past six months.
As such, here's approxiximately what has happened:
In September 2017 I ended up in hospital with a recurring condition I have.
This knocked me out for several weeks initially, and the recovery period is a
number of months to get me back to fully functional.
During that time, in order to reduce stress on myself I decided to drop working
on Gitano. Fortunately, Gitano is pretty solid at 1.0/1.1 and as such we've
not had any major bug reports come through which we weren't already aware of.
As with many things, once I was feeling well enough to work on free software again,
there were any number of other things which caught my attention and since I'm often
I wasn't really in a position to hack on a large Lua project at the same time.
Combining that with Lars working hard on ick2 and I didn't fancy working on the
Jenkins based CI which I was working on before I went into hospital means that
I was entirely uninspired to work on Gitano.
I've finally reached a point where I'd like to get back into Gitano work and so
while the above is no excuse it is, at least, a transparent reason. All I can
do is apologise for what I've not done and promise to be around going forward
unless something equally difficult takes me away. I'll also promise to *try*
and let you all know sooner if that happens.
The reason I say 'fresh start' in the subject is because I've marked all
mails in this box as read and I do not intend to read them. If you have been
involved in a thread which is *still* valid then I'd appreciate it if you would
either re-post the patches, or re-up the thread in question. I'll then do my
best to get around to reading them.
I'll be posting a mail to the list in a little while which covers the trello
cards remaining for 1.2 and what work I intend to tackle first.
If you're still here and interested in Gitano then thank you for sticking
around, and if this is the last straw and you decide to leave then thank you
for taking part until now and good luck in your future endeavours.
