Seven years ago, back when I was a university student living with my parents and with lots of free time in my hands, I created GNOME To Do to help me organize my Google Summer of Code tasks. It was a fantastic time of my life, and I had the privilege of having time to procrastinate on writing productivity tools without earning a single coin on it.
Over the years, however, things changed. I married, moved to a new home with my partner, adopted a lovely dogga. Had to deal with the sucky parts of life like paying bills, planning meals, doing groceries, therapy, relearning how to live and operate under ADHD, taking care of myself and people around me.
Parallel to that, I’ve been collecting maintainership duties like pokémons, both due to a chronic inability to say ‘no’ and also due to genuinely being interested in most of the things I get involved with.
As it turns out, having massively less free time AND an increasing the number of things to do is not going well.
Which is why, after too much postponing and avoidance, I’m giving up maintainership of GNOME To Do. I do not have the personal resources to maintain it anymore. If anyone is interested in stepping up to maintain it, reach out and I’ll be happy to get you up to speed on the app.
