By dropping them, I'm doing what you asked me to, saying "no" to things
I'm not interested in. I'm just as aware as you are that that doesn't
leave much. I apologize for leaving it for so long, I should have
dropped those packages months ago.

Eh. My bad for not being clear what I meant. All I meant by the develop
in the dark thing was that I don't have code sitting around locally that
isn't pushed. What you see online is what I have here.

I'm not sure what you're looking for here, Aaron. I've lost interest in
some things and dropped them accordingly, albeit later than I should
have. Things that I have intended to get done all along weren't dropped,
because well, I thought they'd get done, and I'm sorry they didn't. You
can't expect someone who in good faith thinks they'll do something to
notify you that they aren't getting it done, because they are under the
impression themselves that they are in fact going to do it.
