If you do not know it already, you are not alone. I know far too many
people who have more or less crashed like you did. Not that it will fix
anything, but there're plenty of others out there who can share
experiences and tips on how to slowly get going again...

Ok, is it just me or was that the understatement of the year? As good as
you are in this project I'm absolutely positive that there are many
places where you would be *extremely* appreciated!

> But that's never going to happen.

Hey! Never say never. The Freenet Project
(http://freenet.sourceforge.net/) has a full-time developer who is
funded by donations only. I do not know exactly for how long they have
been doing it, but I think it must be a couple of years by now. And this
is a project where I don't really see many companies using the software.
I figure many companies would not be shy to donate a monthly fee for the
benefits of using TSVN.

If you feel that the TSVN-developent is true fun, maybe you should
consider going down to 50% time (or so) on your day-job, and try out
some donate-subscription model to pay for the rest of the time working
on TSVN? That could leave you with time for both TSVN *and* holiday! :-)
