XOOPS: Watching a great project fall apart

"Everything dies as they say.

But if there is enough interest then you can pump the
belows and bring the project back to life, you don't
even need to be a programmer just a people person.
Find out why programmers are no longer developing. Is
it because the developers found something better to
work on?"

from what i can tell people aren't communicating.  a
person or very small group is in control.  other
contributors are ignored and quit.  it seems even
useful patches are ignored.  very strange.

the current top three posts on the front page of are (at the time of this email):
1.  It's a shame, so I resign (a dev quitting)
2.  Do people just like moaning on a Forum?  (someone
3.  The Wave of Change IS Upon Us!  (promises,
promises but no code or comment from lead dev)

i've made a small donation via sourceforge, do what i
can to be supportive in the forums and currently
struggle with making a module but have no personal
contact with the leadership.  i'm too odd and not
experienced enough to lead this group out of the desert.
