G'Day Christoph,

Good to see you are feeling better. I felt something wasn't as it seemed 
which is why I reached out about two years back asking if you are OK, 
but didn't want to press the point. Your overall github activity showed 
you were taking a step back from other projects as well, which indicated 
something that I ought to keep my nose out of. Hence the odd 'hello' but 
nothing more.

This is good, in a way. Going cold-turkey can help split your feelings 
away from the physical reality of what you might really need to for your 
own health.

I've been burned-out before (not saying this is the case with you, but 
the treatment for burn-out is the same): sometimes you just have to 
cross that bridge and get your head into fresh air for a while.

Also adding to that the last 18 months have been a real shit-show 
globally and some of that stuff just makes my head hurt even more, and 
then that combines with some family stuff and I can understand why you 
wanted some fresh air.

If you wish to contribute in any way (even managing stuff or doing 
release co-ordination), whatever suits you, just drop me a line.

-- Chris
