Hello there,

Shakthi has recently encountered a situation where I think upstream of
his package is pretty non-responsive, that we can call it dead

I went to see on sourceforge to see how many of the EDA tools's
development were pretty much dead. I was surprise to see my bright
ideas unachieved.

So the question is
As a community driven and non-profit opensource EDA leader,  what should we do ?

I would like to hear from you how you would like to contribute to
solve this situation.

As far as I'm concerned, I would rather want to take over the upstream
responsibilities and little by little migrate the code/features to an
active upstream of existing opensource EDA software. In other words,
improve the existing supported opensource EDA tools.

It will also be very interesting for new developers who don't actually
know what to contribute to the opensource community.

Kind regards,
