Thanks all for your kind words. I should clarify that I never intended
to "retire" completely, just to pause until things settle in.

Wow - This really wasn't intended as a call to arms, but thanks :)
To be cynical, though, would this kind of response happen for a newer
contributor (whose articles are likely just as good or better and more
complete than any of my Template articles, as an example)? Again, no
personal attacks intended or implied. I'm just offering up some

I don't hold _anyone_ personally accountable.

Actually, on the whole I think the docs are fantastic. I can't tell
you the number of times I've looked up Template Tag articles (Thanks
Kaf) etc. But the slowness you mention is, I suppose, really the main
issue. To take you, Carthik, as an example: this personal
preoccupation of yours is understandable (I can greatly sympathize -
these past weeks, for example, I've been preparing my first talk for
Group Meeting (it went pretty well)). Having to do other things is
always understandable; Codex is not my highest priority in life, and I
don't think it should be for anyone. But that's just it, people will
always be preoccupied; I don't see things getting faster in the future.
Perhaps I'm wrong; it could be that things are slower now simply
because Codex is still pretty new, but I don't think so.
The only obvious solution to me is to get an additional admin or two to
help with the workload (actually, I guess I'm offering an idea rather
than a solution. As I mentioned before, I am not a candidate for such

I'll see what kind of time I have.
Thanks everyone for your input. More importantly, thanks to everyone
for all the great work they've done/do on Codex. It's really a great
