You're good at volunteering people to do work. 

I already maintain a lot of code, and I have my own LocalFS-type code so I 
don't see the need to maintain a different one. If I was using it, I
would happily take it over, in the same way I've given my code over to
other people to maintain.

As for docs, an army of people continually volunteer on #zope to update
the zope book. Given my other contributions to Zope society, there are
people far better suited to writing technical documentation than I.

I'm happy to be a knowledge resource for anyone wanting to update the
existing book / write a new freely available document.
