As you also pointged out in your other mail, the use cases for SCXML are difficult and people
will only start to use it, if they grasp the theoretical concept. So it is no wonder, that
you have to wait until more interested people coming by. From the communities' PoV we just
have to ensure maintainability i.e. that there are enough other interested people.

Yes, it is best to continue and be present here on the list. Active development attracts always
more people.
