But it troubles me somewhat that the bus number of Jesse is one.

[Or, in more practical terms, you have other demands on your time, such as
cats, wife, cats, company to run, cats, conferences, cats, sleep, cats.
At least, I'm sure that's how the cats see it.]

And that when the cajoling stops, so does most of the activity. There's
little or no breadth here. A lot of people are relying on very few people
to actually do the work of reviewing and applying patches, fixing bugs,
and organising and making releases.
