I, like Brian, talked with various folks. In my case, I talked them as
part of developing the original RSE job description and as part of the
interviewing process. I can't name them but I can tell you I communicated
in some form with five folks, whose estimates roughly were:
A: half time
B: half to 3/4 time
C: a bit over half time
D: #'s close to Paul's
E: half time
You can believe me or not. I realize this is not super satisfactory but
like Brian, I can't reveal details unless folks step forward -- note that
some are not on this list.
That said, I think a more compelling answer would be to take the estimates
of folks who have done something close to this job, namely Bob Braden and
Glenn, rather than guesses from those (including me) who have not done it
and are translating from editorial jobs they've done elsewhere.
