Hi All,



I too feel overwhelmed. I ameliorate that by focusing my attention on tracking comments about the SC I manage, and trying to incorporate them on a weekly basis. (I also read a lot of what Wayne writes.)

Glenda's description captures my feelings, as well.



It can be hard, at times, to parse my sense of overwhelm, from other concerns that I may be missing some info, etc.

Wayne,



I'll just say that the current volume and varied topics of discussion are overwhelming to me.  I've had to pick and choose what I focus on, and I filter out the rest.  My brain just can't handle it all.  In fact, I doubt any single brain can handle it all.



Once I'm focused on what I want (for example, color contrast and graphics/ui components), then it may take me a moment to gather everything I need to look at in github (and elsewhere).



My biggest problem is...I just need a clone, or two or three.

      Hi All,

      If I am the only person who cannot follow the issue lists. I complained privately but was told nobody else has complained.  I really have seen no improvement. The low vision lists are so wordy and multi-purpose I cannot follow then. Also, there seems to be no addressing system to follow.



      This week I cannot find the four statements of the Adaptive text SC.  So I cannot pick one. Maybe it is just me.



      If I'm the only one who is really lost completely let me know.



      I use github for code content management through my IDE doesn't pull issues through.  Does anyone have a decent way to use github for issues?
