I know, and I probably should, but here's why I haven't yet:

There are countless things we can do to improve the situation in the curl
project. I personally spend 50+ hours a week on it (mostly because I love it).

There are limits to what I as a single individual can pull through. I
regularly present ideas of what *we* can do and how *we* can improve things
here (as in the curl project), and while I love a good response and cheers; if
it ends up as yet another thing for *me* to do then I need to put it on the
big pile of things to work on slowly and gradually on rainy days. Then I won't
be able to use anyone's services or tools for the forseeable future so I'm not
going to bother with that at this point.

I'm not blaming anyone and this is not a complaint. I'm just trying to explain
my position.
