What is this negative intent?  I see people concerned about the
maintenance of what has become an important community resource.  Like
most hackers, they are not satisfied by processes that are not
transparent.  Whether you mean it or not, that is the impression you
are giving.

This isn't a personal attack, Jeff.  Just normal criticism of the
maintainer of a high-profile module.  So why do you think that
Federico and others "want negativity more than they want resolution"
when they are offering to help out directly?  It seems to me an awful
lot like a contributor trying hard to get his patch accepted by a
maintainer who happens to be pretty busy.

That being said, I'm glad to hear that you are making progress on this
front, and look forward to hearing more details when you have a
chance.  As someone who over-extends on a regular basis, I'm not
particularly bothered by delays.  :-)
