Too often I find conflicts happening among contributors/leaders of the project (in the past several months). What's going on, and who runs the project? I find it hard to follow... it does not appear there is a single/unified plan.

hi @Tshepang Lekhonkhobe . Thanks for the feedback and sorry about it. It's just the active work has moved from one set of maintainers to another so there are a few differences that are being ironed out. :slight_smile:

It's just friction which always happens when different people start working together. It will smooth out.

Tshepang Lekhonkhobe (Mar 30 2020 at 07:07, on Zulip):

Who are the maintainers now... are they the same that took over from @Kevin Knapp middle of last year?

pksunkara (Mar 30 2020 at 10:30, on Zulip):

That's @DPC, isn't it? Currently me and @CreepySkeleton are working on it

DPC (Mar 30 2020 at 10:56, on Zulip):

There's no change in Maintainers. It's just that new people are added.

We (@pksunkara , @TeXitoi and I) have come sometime around early February. We've incorporated structopt as clap_derive, thanks @pksunkara - and, um, me - for that; we've made the repo more or less maintainable (the 150+ issues weren't categorized, CI was broken, etc...); we've done tons of other, smaller things we don't even remember about.

This issue (put together but Kevin a few years ago) is the closest thing to the roadmap we have for now. the problem with it is that the entries are not prioritized, small things like "rename method" stand right next to big "clap_derive" things. I'll try to write a comprehensive high-level roadmap soon.

DPC (Mar 30 2020 at 13:39, on Zulip):

The "WE" is highly misleading. I don't know from where you get the false notion that we have completely handed over the repositories to both of you.

CreepySkeleton (Mar 30 2020 at 13:51, on Zulip):

Come on, guys! I didn't mean to leave you (and the others) out! I was just explaining what the newcomers have done because I got impression that there's some sort of prejudice against us, me in particular.

Disclaimer: I AM NOT A NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKER! Next time you (or someone else) gets impression that I was rude, disrespectful, didn't give you enough justice, etc.., could you please ask me to clarify the meaning first, before jumping to conclusions?
