General Development 14 months ago, the Autopackage project was small and active, and members sounded optimistic about its success. Now, although the alternative installer project continues, progress has almost come to a halt. The #autopackage channel on irc.oftc.net sits vacant most days, the developer blogs cover almost anything except the project, and commits to the source code repository have become rare. Formally, the project is still alive, but the major contributors all agree that it is faltering. So what happened?

I'm not working on autopackage anymore because my day job at Google now takes up most of my hacking energy.

It's definitely not because I suddenly decided autopackage was a bad idea all along.
