Thanks @coagmano. I think I said something slightly different. The general part in my statement was that the number of tickets is increasing and not that generally issues are going unanswered. However my interest is whether or not Meteor is going to support its product (MeteorJS) in 2-4 years given the fact that it seems the team is getting really slim, at least on the side of MeteorJS.
Please think of it this way: when you go in a tender and propose a product/solution based on a technology, that technology needs to be valid, to have a guaranteed life, prestige, reputation. I always thought MeteorJS has the capability to break the monopoly of big tech (e.g. Oracle, SAP) especially in times where markets are not doing so well and when entrepreneurship is on the rise and there are thousands of new businesses coming up, looking for product for their own needs. We are developers - we understand what is under the hood, but clients focus is set differently, more on the business security side. Acquiring clients or doing business on the basis of “Meteor is growing on its own now” doesn’t work. This mentality may work for Arduino fun club but when your reputation as a software provider is at stake … there is a little more needed.
When I am being asked “Who is Mongo”, well there is a lot of good things to say/write in offers about it as a company, support, geo-diversity, compliancy. When I have to document MeteorJS … don’t know what to say about the company… I truly cannot say “small team of super stars”.
I hoped I could get something more like a corporate statement attached with a little bit of assurance and ideally a company/corporate CV / presentation which, as I said at the beginning seems to be missing from the website or anywhere else.
If MeteorJS is not and will not become business grade and cannot be endorsed at that level, I would love to be told so.
