Thanks for making all there libraries! I use lucid extensively and could help maintaining it

I’m doing various things to mitigate that problem, but I have very limited finger bandwidth these days; enough to work at my usual pace at my job, but not much in the evenings and weekends, and so I can’t manage to do much on my hobby projects. I’m also not as motivated these days to work on my set of open source projects, and am turning my attention to different things. It’s not great, but that’s life.

There’s some Emacs Lisp work to do on it, and some Haskell work on the intero binary, and a whole lot of platform-specific problems or tooling not working together. On the other hand people really like this project, and there’s a lot of tooling potential.

If you’re interested in taking over or co-maintaining any of them, let me know. Some are interesting, others are boring, some are trivial.
