This can lead to exhaustion and thus to sometimes being a bit too blunt. But let's not talk about that now. Instead, let's talk about the best of times, the positive outcomes, the things that really make you happy to be running an open source project. Patches, both bug fixes and new features are like this. So is learning about all the places people are using your project. Even better if they are using it ways you could not even imagine when you started. All of these things are great, but they are not the best.
