indeed. I'm not too worried about development and releases per se. Most
design decisions are already taken by a group of people and discussed on
IRC. Also, while ardour-dev is still understaffed, there are quite a few
people regularly working on the code. Paul's contributions can never be
underestimated but it's not a one-man-show.

I'd be more worried about the overall representation. I don't know
anyone who provides better support on IRC, the web-forum and various
email-lists at the same time while writing code and overseeing
development. Paul is doing an amazing job!
