Thanks Tom. My intentions for the next few months are to continue to
do whatever I can to encourage new contributors. I've done a lot of
refactoring recently which will help whoever tries to make code
changes, but there's other things I think I can do too. So it will
likely be a combination of:

* My own refactoring priorities, which will pay off for developers in
the long term but aren't very visible to most people.
* Working through the PR and issue backlogs, to try and help some
straightforward things get "over the line" - hopefully motivating for
* Work on a few end-user facing tasks, so that we're making visible progress.
