After a lot of hand-wringing and guilty-conscience-wrestling I've decided that it's time for me to give up maintaining tuneup-js. For those who still use this tool I don't feel like I'm a very good steward for it any more. I don't have the time to closely review the pull-requests generous contributors send me. Not only is this a disservice to those who would contribute, but I can no longer cast a watchful eye on the overall direction and code-quality of tuneup. 

So I have to at once plead for help and obstinately put my foot down. I think tuneup deserves a better maintainer than me and I hope there is a good soul out there willing to take on this challenge. I also have to carve boundaries out in my life and these days tuneup is at the bottom of the inbox. So, until a new maintainer is found, I won't be accepting any new pull-requests, publishing any new releases or fixing any issues filed against the project. 

Do I feel bad about abandoning this project? To certain extent, yes. But life moves on and I have other things that require my attention. If I hung onto every obligation I ever accumulated in life I'd never have the time to do the things I truly love to do. 

If you or someone you know might be interested in becoming a maintainer please get in touch with me. Tuneup deserves it.
