I am sorry about your mental health issues, but its important to be
aware of your own limits. I get that this is a hobby project for all
contributors, but the community desires more. Why not pass on
maintainership for XZ for C so you can give XZ for Java more
attention? Or pass on XZ for Java to someone else to focus on XZ for
C? Trying to maintain both means that neither are maintained well.
