[MacRuby-devel] What's going on with MacRuby?

The recent Github activity is nice to see, and your point about MacRuby being fairly mature is well-taken.
When I saw that Watson joined the RubyMotion team, saw the commits slow down, and noticed the lack of mailing list activity (especially compared to the RubyMotion Google group activity), I got a little worried. I'm putting a fair amount of time into some MacRuby projects, I love it, and I want to see it thrive.
Aside from that broad concern, I have experienced only one particular issue, for which I filed a bug report (#137). It's no biggie, and I certainly don't expect anybody to jump on it, since it's pretty low in priority.
Hopefully, we will see some of the RM code (such as the memory management model) make it back into the MR code.

Admittedly the mailing list activity has dropped off a bit, but I do still and try to monitor #macruby on Freenode and the GitHub project has a decent amount of activity. One would hope that the other reason activity has dropped off is that people are having fewer issues with MacRuby. Now, that may be wishful thinking, but if there is something in particular you are concerned about I think we'd be more than happy to hear about it and discuss what could be done.
