Well, it's also not entirely true. I've submitted a few pull
requests recently to hopefully help clear a few obstacles for
others. But after that I probably won't be doing besides a few
things here and there.

I don't want to get too deep into it, as I don't think it will
result in anything positive. Suffice it to say, I want to get to
X. I don't know where others want to go, but it sure doesn't
look like they're all that interested in X. I don't think I'll
ever be able to use D professionally if it stays on the current
trajectory, and trying to influence its direction by contributing
is exhausting and affects me negatively.
At one point I asked myself: "In 5 years what will I have to
show for the blood, sweat, and tears I put into D?" vs "In 5
years what will I have to show for the sweat, without the blood
and tears, I put into X?". Opportunity cost is the term that
comes to mind. Even if X never materializes I'll be more
skilled, fulfilled, and ultimately happier if I work on X than
contribute to D.
