We have many recipes already.

It's not that people don't care, it's that there's a lot of work to do,
a limited amount of time to do it in, and people have to choose
carefully what they apply themselves to.  I'm sure you can understand

Which is why we want more cooks.  If you don't want checkin privs,
that's ok, but you'll need to be more patient.
