Satchmo Still Going Strong
Despite the lack of activity on the satchmo site, there is still plenty of work going on to make Satchmo more stable, feature rich and generally all around better. It's true that we haven't had a release as recently as we would like, it's more a matter of taking the time to do it than some magical feature component in development.
As I looked back since the last release, here are a few stats on the "health" of the community:
While I would definitely like to have had more releases, the project is still very much alive and maintained. In the future, the best place to see the activity on the project is to look on bitbucket.
If you are interested in helping out, one of the best things you can do at this point is checkout satchmo tip and report any bugs you find. Overall, we're closing in on a release but it's more a matter of my time than anything else. If you can help verify things work correctly in your environment, then we'll be closer to a release.
Thanks for everyone's help and support!
