I've worked on a lot of open source Haskell projects over the past ten years, and continue to do so today. It's been a great source of fun and learning. It has been, and will continue to be, a major part of my life, my work, and my hobbies. However, I'm making a conscious decision to shift where my focus lies.
My goal is to focus much more on enabling others to work on projects, rather than doing so myself. I've come to this decision for a number of reasons:
If you see one of my open source projects that you'd like to become a comaintainer on, or contribute in some way, reach out. I can't make promises about my time, but I can promise that I will strive to make time available to mentor people looking to get more involved.
In collaboration with some others, I'm planning on writing some kind of "guide to open source maintenance" document to help keep the projects I'm maintaining running smoothly. I'm hoping that such a write-up will be helpful for others. More generally: I encourage others who maintain open source projects to take similar steps towards helping others join their projects.
Related documents I've written before include:
If you're interested in this, you're probably wondering how best to communicate that to me. What I recommend is:
(I considered writing a blog post about the comparison of different chat options I did, but ultimately decided it would be more noise than it's worth. If people are really curious how I ended up on gitter.im, let me know, and I'll reconsider publishing that post.)
