First off, I'm not trying to spread FUD. I love Bukkit. I've donated a small amount to bukkit. I love the community here. But I can't help but feel troubled at the state of development of late. Bug reports are being ignored, or worse, answered with snide comments that do nothing to solve the problem (from one staff member in particular who I will not mention). Pull Request after Pull Request on GitHub sits ignored. The Git repo has sit pretty much silent the past 10 days. Issues with Bukkit are causing me to deal with lots of bug reports that are actually issues with Bukkit, not a particular plugin. Now, if the staff are too busy with real lives, I can empathize. Life as a student is hecketic, and I can't imagine pulling a real job AND maintaining this kind of project. But I feel that if real life is conflicting, then Bukkit staff should announce such, and temporarily step down, until their life cools down. That way, the remaining members can assign volunteers who can pick up the slack (I'm not volunteering mind you. ) Even If the problem stems from some other source, please inform the community. 95% of us are sane, and can handle calm, rational announcements, even if it's telling us development will be slowing down. For the tl;dr folks: Bukkit Staff, please keep us informed. Otherwise we can only assume the worst. Author Update (24/3/11): Development seems to have spurred into action again, which is good news. While I still would appreciate more disclosure (we don't care if it's technical), it seems my fears are unfounded.
