You may have noticed my contributions have diminished over the past months, both on GitHub as here on Pixls. My gut tells me it’s necessary to change pace. A hobby is also only as good as the fulfillment and relaxation you get from it. I repeatedly cannot commit myself as much as I would like, and the complementing increase in frustration is not easily rationalized away.
The only logical, but difficult step left is to really say adieu for now. I have therefore removed myself from the GitHub project and will stop frequenting this forum. I will definitely not forget the project, nor this wonderful community, and I will keep supporting Pixls with a monthly donation. When my fingers start to itch again and I find the time and peace of mind, I know I can get back to a group of kind and dedicated people doing great things.
And finally, don’t hesitate to contact me personally through Pixls if you want.
Thanks for the update. It was good working with you, I hope we’ll work together again at some point in the future.
Also, apologies to the others for not being super-active on the git side of things lately… Work has been a bit hectic, so I can easily participate in the forums but haven’t busted out an editor on my personal machines in a while. I’ll hopefully be a bit more active soon though.
Roel, thank you for all the contributions you’ve made over the years, especially for being an unofficial maintainer of sorts and for pushing the project along towards a much needed release. I will miss seeing you around here. Wishing you a happy life.
Hi, Roel. As a forever-greatful RawTherapee user, I just wanted to express exactly how much your dedication and hard work, as well as that of all the other generous contributors, has changed my life forever — without RawTherapee, I simply would not be able to afford to continue with the hobby I love.
The time and effort that both you and your colleagues have put into this wonderful project has had such a huge impact, and I don’t think that we (as humble users) take the time to really say ‘thank you’ and express just how much of an impact — for some of us, myself included, that impact has been a game-changer.
So, thank you once again; without guys like you, there would be no camera in my camera bag, and a heck of a lot less joy in my life. And I wish you all the very best for the future.
I have neither been a longtime nor an active member in this community, but I would also like to thank you for everything you offered! I really appreciate it when people offer their time and effort just to help others in communities and projects like this.
I wish you find joy and satisfaction in anything you choose to do and have a great time all in all! Thanks again!
