Funny how it's the users who can't seem to shut up about Haze, whereas the developers have more or less moved on and wish him the best, as we respect that real life takes precedence over free work.

This aside, Haze stepping down will allow other developers, or potentially new developers, to start contributing more often. Where you see a prolific developer, other developers saw someone who, for various reasons, was able to take first dibs on quite a lot of additions that would have been the perfect fodder for new and inexperienced contributors to get their feet wet.

In my opinion, it's unfortunate that he lamented the lack of anything simple for new developers to work on, when that situation was effectively one of his own creation. If you look at the list of commits to the git repository, you'll see that Scott "Tafoid" Stone is already dabbling in adding some of the newly-dumped clones, when previously he generally didn't touch the code. I wish Haze the best, and I do hope that he is eventually able to return to the project once he gets things in real life sorted out, but for now I see this as an opportunity for other people to start stepping up to the plate.
