First of all, I have significant respect for anyone who takes the time to make their plugin publicly accessible let alone put all of the work that cybrmage has into making all of his plugins so exhaustive and functional. His contributions to the Vera community are significant and stunningly knowledgable. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been reading one of his posts baffled at how he knows everything that he does and the fact that he has been willing to share this knowledge with us through his work is enough to owe the guy a great debt of gratitude.
With that being said, for the sake of anyone considering Vera and of course those already using, I’m wondering if development/support for this plugin is officially dead?
Understandably, developing and supporting a plugin could potentially eat up the entirety of ones resources and at the bargain price of “free”… I couldn’t possibly expect any level of support. However it would be great to get some what of an official word on whether or not continued support/development is planned so that in which case there isn’t continued interest we could potentially find a candidate to fill that void.
There are undoubtedly many capable minds in the community (although very few at the caliber of cybrmage) that could potentially help ensure this plugin has a strong future and hopefully even some updates to squash any bugs. I don’t think anyone would consider stepping on another developers toes so perhaps if we had some type of idea of whether or not there is a void to be filled we could at least begin to seek out someone to fill it if necessary.
Again, I want to reaffirm how grateful I and I’m sure many others are for the amount of time and effort that has went into this plugin. It’s only because of how appreciative I am of this that I’d love to ensure that all the effort doesn’t go to waste due to dormancy.
