What will happen to all these abandoned plugins?
There appear to be quite a few plugins that have been abandoned by their developer.
Under open source is it allowed to take over the development of someone else’s plugin, and then resubmit it (obviously crediting the original author)?
Perhaps all the current plugins should be thrown into some kind of code vault for people to use, and actively developed plugins be resubmitted?
I’ve just fixed two plugins to work with V1.0 but have no way of knowing if their original authors are planning on updating them at any point. I’d want to do more work on them if I was going to resubmit them, but I’m not sure whether to wait a bit to see if the original developer decides to do anything with them.
I know _ck_ is holding off a little bit for bbP to get more established before making fixes (which is fair enough). Have we just entered a stage of limbo?
