This is a bit depressing to hear.

While I don't have the time for a lot of new development work at the moment,
I hereby promise to aggressively debug any problems caused by any code
I've contributed.  I'm also willing to try to help with any show-stopping bugs
that creep into integration or release candidate branches for other reasons.
