As I said, "I don't think that situation has changed."  My own
experiences with it have not been great either.

If you have other experiences with it to report then that is great.  I
would much rather hear that things are working wonderfully rather than
that things are in a sorry state.

That is wonderful.  I will note this down as one person with good
recent experiences with it.  :-)

There are a lot of moribund projects on the net.  If they don't get
care, love, and attention then they stay that way and a few years
means nothing.  Adding years does not magically fix things.  Adding
care and effort fixes things through the sweat of the brow.  Years
without effort means nothing.
