  • This effect is very real, I think.

    I saw a similar effect in Perl::Critic. When I first got commit, it seemed like Jeff took a short breather. When Elliot joined, I couldn't keep up with his energy and had to work just to keep up with the commit emails let alone the code. Now, I've been gone from P::C so long that I feel I'll have to relearn a lot just to make a contribution.

          Or just ask question on the Padre IRC channel or on the Padre mailing list. See the contact info [] for details.
