To be clear, I don't see myself as critical to Twine. If I were, that would be a huge issue.

Brian does an excellent job and Jason is available to help a lot of the time. Regardless, I have meeting with senior legal counsel for my employer Friday. So I'll know more then.

All of this is to say, go ahead. I'll know more about whether I'm still a maintainer this weekend.

I don't think this is much different than the PSF accepting funding

would definitely recommend checking with your employer. We can just
exclude twine from this for now, I'd hate to potentially lose you as a
maintainer.

My contract disallows me from receiving any compensation for F/OSS work and this will likely look an awful like that to the folks in legal. Sent from my phone with my typo-happy thumbs.
