After some thoughts during me finalizing the release of wslu 4.0, I am thinking about stopping the development of
wslu after at most 5 non-breaking change updates (a.k.a. version 4.5).
I have been thinking about this for a while. I love WSL, and I love
wslu, but working with this project is TIRING. I spend a lot of time on this project from setting up websites, packaging repositories, maintaining 4 external repositories (CORS, OBS, Launchpad, Alpine), community management(Twitter, Reddit, etc.), writing documentation, updating posts like this, and I do not even get to the code part.
Right now, I feel I am no longer gaining anything from this project while spending a lot of time with it. I hope to switch to another project but I keep coming back because it is still not complete. It started to become a chore for me, and I start to feel unfulfilled doing this project.
Just some extra information, I have one project
GNOME GRE Writing waiting for re-written to GTK4, one project
wslcfg waiting to be polished,
wslpy waiting to be expanded and the other 2 waiting to be started. After releasing wslu 4.0, I will start posting more information about them.
And good night.
