I used to be relatively active in but in the last two years or so I burned out to the point I can't even bring myself to label an issue - on a project I contributed on - a duplicate.

I still enjoy the community but I can't see myself making the unappreciated effort anymore.

That might also be the reason why I changed instances from Fosstodon.org to my current one (layer8.space).


Thinking more about this: I guess a lot of it comes from having to deal with FOSS-consumers.

In that project specifically it's a lot of people not making the smallest effort to check for context before filing issues or checking for the status. And then getting impatient and feeling entitled.

I have really no idea how that single maintainer is just chugging along on that work, dealing with people and still having time for non-project stuff.
