I confess. I didn't read this entire thing through top to bottom, but I've been where you are.

Open Source is about being Open Minded and an autonomous learner/doer. You contribute your piece, and if it's rejected, you move on to bigger and better things. If you're employed, obviously that comes first. But you can always round robin (like I often do) open source projects. Even better, you can make the things you write for work (given it doesn't violate any NDAs or contract obligations) open source.

Open source will always be there, and if the maintainers are smart, they'll always be happy for a few extra hands to help out.

LanX vile place ...
[LanX]: well, me was kidding!
[marto]: One of the main train stations is right across the road, so handy from that perspective, and there are some nice hotels in the area, but it's not great after dark, or sometimes during the day to be honest
[LanX]: not easy to find good and affordable venues ...
[marto]: hmm, there are several universities and colleges handy that I'd have thought would offer such services, given this is out of term time, I've no experience of paying for venues :)
[LanX]: OK ...
[LanX]: I have no idea how Mark scouted, giving that he lives in London ... but I think he mentioned his wife being Scottish
[marto]: ah, so this is payback :P
[LanX]: problem with booking venues is that you only know the number of participants a week in advance. ..
