Is it really only one person working on meteor?


#1

I have read that @benjamn went on holiday and it seems all releases and updates absolutely stopped. Is he really the only one who is working on meteor?


#2

It’s been said that Meteor’s bus factor is perilously close to 1.


#3

I think that’s a bit of a strong word, there is stuff getting done: https://github.com/meteor/meteor/commits/devel

I don’t think it’s reasonable to expect a new release every week for something of Meteor’s size.


#4

3 commits in 7 days :slight_smile:

I’m sure things will pick up again shortly, but I think at this point things are about as close to a grinding halt as they come :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

Not all work is commits on meteor/meteor. For example, it is also work to plan better community involvement, help Blaze get off the ground, etc.


#6

I know man, and not trying to rag on you guys! :heart: Just pointing out that from the very limited perspective of the commit log, things definitely appear to have slowed.


#7

Yeah but that’s what essentially was going on before, every few days there was some beta or RC released. And incidentally when @benjamn went on holidays it slowed down like a lot. Looks like he is really good and is doing a great job. Maybe I am a bit spoiled by now :slight_smile:
