I agree with Dan.
I am all for folks doing what they are called to do. I simply hope
that those efforts won't come at the expense of this group, because
code4lib, imperfect as it may be, is a wonderful resource.

In this case, though, I hope it will be an "and" operation, not an exclusive "or". I would be happy to hear that a new group formed and that it's going well. I would be disappointed if people in that group ended up moving away from this one big group. It happens, and I'd get over it, sure, but it'd still be disappointing. We gain something by gathering together like we have here. It's not exclusive, nor should it be. But code4lib has added so much to me and my work that I know how much I stand to lose if we do not also keep working to stick together, however difficult that can be sometimes.
