Apathetic and Lurkers
Message ID:
I am a lurker.  I am attempting to observe the overhaul of my personal favorite programming language.  When I was a kid I liked to hang out in a mechanics shop while the wrenches overhauled the various motors in the shop.  This was in the 60's and 70's when an overhaul usually meant bolting on high performance additions to the family car.  I'm here with the same childish curiosity.  I'm watching the activity.  Speaking as a 37 year old kid it's fascinating.  I'm not apathetic about the rewrite, I just haven't seen anything yet that I really feel strongly about.  I'm sure that is to come.  At some point I would even like to help, but I haven't seen a place where I could make a positive contribution.  Just my $.02 worth.
