[JDEV] Me and Slowness (was: Krufty Jabber Client)

This is a response to the thread below...

I know I've been a bottleneck in the last few weeks and especially the
last few days.  I was giving my 100% attention to moving jabber.org to the
new server explicitly so that I could provide more options and tools and
be even LESS of a bottleneck.  Now that things are moved and I've returned
from my quick weekend vacation, I've been concentrating on catching up on
my 250+ backlog of jabber emails as well as setting more things up on the
new jabber.org.

The new teams are set up so to allow any group of developers interested in
a particular aspect of Jabber to take the lead and operate completly
independently and have all the tools immediately accessable to get their
job done.  This should remove any reliance on me or others.

I do ask that everyone has a little patience over this next week, as I
have a few man-years of writing to do in proposals and documentation, as
well as getting the 0.6 codebase moved into the new CVS server and keeping
up with my email.

Thanks for your patience thus far, things are going to really start moving
along quickly here in the next few weeks!
