the last couple of months have been rather quiet, this is mainly due to the
fact that some of the main contributors have had other priorities (family
expansion, marriage, vacation and so on). Also, I think summertime with nice
weather is a cause.

see other comments...., I'm only involved since about 2 years...

I think we are fairly complete for basic functions, if there are
requirements for other plugin functionality people can enter JIRA issues.
Contribution of plugins is indeed low the last year, I can't explain why.

as Janne already pointed out, this is due to the incubating process and our
documentation issue, we made this site very basic, pointing over to the
current wiki's (which are much easier to maintain).

yep, we surely could use more good developers picking up bugs and feature
the most coding time is currently spent (I guess) in getting 3.0 up to the
basic functioning (Stripes + JCR) and the promotion to an ASF top level
project, leaving not much time left for JIRA issues.
