Hey Andrew. 

I've been thinking a lot about this. You clearly shouldn't be maintaining 
Channels single-handedly indefinitely.

I know Channels started out separately, but, it's time to think about what, 
if anything of channels, is to be brought into core, or become THE WAY we 
do things or... Yes, we need more hands, but there's a bunch of people who 
can help out, and at least part of the problem is your out there in the 
wings by yourself (with not much visibility.) 

Q: How does Channels fit into the "Django Async Roadmap"? 

To the extent that it does, I think there's a case for asking the board and 
the DSF more widely to throw everything we've got behind making sure it's 
properly resourced. 

Once I recover a bit from the burnout I'll be able to come back and help

I presume you DON'T offer support on the issue tracker, and point people to 
other channels? I'd be happy to "straight-bat" obvious tickets away. 
(Michael's offer to recieve is valuable there.) 

"...and weird WebSocket client bugs."

Can I ask you to explain what you mean there? (Point to a ticket maybe.) 
What kind of query do you get? Is there a particular knack to working out 
if it's a valid bug or not? (Or is it apparent?)

Thanks for all you work here. Legend. ­čÖé
