Two years ago, the core development team basically consisted of 3 or 4 people with long-term involvement in the project. Nearly all of them needed to shift their attention to their private life - although not everyone communicated this clearly. So, unfortunately, this has left the project hanging in limbo.
I still visit Pixls on a daily basis, and I consider myself the de facto maintainer of the project (even though not with all rights and privileges), so in that sense, ‘official’ support is still available. Then again, there are plenty of people who can provide excellent answers to RT related questions.
This is certainly true. The underlying issue is that the person with intimate knowledge of the release process is not available. And nobody else knows (or dares?) to make a release on their own.
