This is an act of community leadership that I've no doubt will echo beyond just the Dev/Forem team's mental health - we need behaviour modelling like this, so thank you.

One of the temptations when you have a job or project that means a lot (as Dev undoubtedly does) is to turn it into everything. Humans need novelty and rest. Giving your mind away from task work is a crucial part in the productivity cycle. I'm lucky to work for a company that gives every third Friday as a paid leave day.

Kudos for doing this, and for this announcement.
