Eric claims five new contributors submitting patches since April and I only count 3 people submitting 4 patches. The patches are non-trivial.
So the idea is to give the contributors committership and hope things take off? Eric does want to make one more release. Maybe that will churn some enthusiasm. Eric is very tenacious about keeping it open and he is very timely with the mailing list discussions and submitted patches.
I'm inclined to give it another shot but I'm wondering what criteria do we use to decide that we've done all we've can.
