This, in essence, is the problem.  You're using the first person
singular here, and it's become obvious that one person can't keep up
with this any more.  The project, thanks in part to your hard work,
has grown past that stage.

If it's significantly more work spread among many people, that is a
perfectly viable solution, just as long as it doesn't cause any one
person to be overloaded.

We need to get this project more bus-proof, whether it's the patch
queue or a server people depend on that's silently down for a week
with no ETAs in sight for getting any piece of it back on line.

Bruce, are you ready to help create a more bus-proof situation?  If
so, what specific steps would you like to take in that direction?
