"If there’s one thing I’ve learned in open source, it’s this: the more work you do, the more work gets asked of you. There is no solution to that problem that I’m aware of."

A gentle reminder that people who work on free code, and other free-of-charge projects, are volunteers, creating and maintaining infrastructure we use every day in their precious spare time. Please be kind to them. Giving them praise and encouragement, as well as complaints and requests, will make their volunteer work more rewarding and more sustainable. You might also find it makes *you* feel better about your interactions with them.


@strypey …and if you can, support them financially. Even just a couple of bucks a month goes a long way if more and more people start supporting a project.
