I do not think doing a release from the current code is really an
option because of the performance regression, so all I can see us
doing is continue to move forward as best we can.

I see that Hyrum has sort of addressed what I was going to ask, but I
was just going to say what can be done to get more people involved? I
am sure I will be asked to get Paul and Mike involved in this to help
speed things along. Besides being busy fixing merge issues (Paul) and
working on the HTTPv2 protocol (Mike), I think neither one of them
really knows how to get started on helping. I am sure there are other
committers who feel the same. So maybe we need to make a more
concerted effort to bring in additional help and guide them on how to
get started?
