I don't have any kids, but I still don't have time to read everything
in the mailing list.  I reiterate my long-standing suggestion that we
create a gnome-newbies and/or a gnome-debug mailing list to segregate
this traffic.  It has become simply unmanageable for me.

That said, I suggest, Willy, that you pick a specific area of interest
to you and concentrate on that.  For me it's the FAQ, which is a bad area
from the time-management perspective, as I'm expected to know everything,
and thus I feel really bad not reading every message.  If you were to
pick a single project to program on or, if you're not a programmer,
to help debug, document, package, etc., then you can get work done in
the hours here and there that you can find to work on it.
