A lesson for open source contributors

From the TiddlyWiki Google Group,

“I tried xxxxxPlugin a year or more ago, had some problems with it but never got any replies so I dropped it.”

It sounds almost blindingly obvious, but this is possibly the most important lesson to learn from TiddlyWiki as an open source project – there will always be another plugin, another developer, another helping hand in the community willing to divert attention away from your contributions. It is not enough just to put code out there and step back.
