So, I've been going over even more issues for a few hours and the
overwhelming feeling I'm sensing is apathy/indifference. (I should say
these are mostly the issues imported from Trac, so I'm sure there's a
certain bias there towards old/languishing issues. This will, of course,
colour my judgment.)

I'm not sure what to make of this, or if any of the people involved[1]
have anything to say on this, but I just thought I'd bring it to the
light. (For all I know, the principals may be on vacation or working 24h
shifts for people who pay actual money right now. If so, I apologize for
the "ambush".)

I'm also sensing a bit of "everyone-is-responsible-therefore-nobody-is"
about the whole project, but that's really just a very subjective
feeling. Do any casual contributors feel the same way? Relatedly, I'm
curious as to whether there's an actual "project lead" who sets the
direction or if it's just a sort of "democratic" thing...?



[1] Going through the issues, I think I just about managed to insult
every single maintainer of Cabal/cabal-install. I didn't mean to and
don't bear any personal animosity, but I can be... blunt. Forgive me,
guys! It was for a good cause, I think.
