I love plash. I've used it to make something completely insane a reality (a wiki in which most of the code for the wiki software is part of the wiki itself and editable by anyone, ), and it's stood up to all attempts at hackery thusfar. And there have been attempts at hackery :P

However, I am concerned by the development status. The last release is over two years old now, and the latest commit to the SVN repo is 7 months old ... neither of these necessarily mean anything, but they don't bode well. Thanks to Debian's slow release cycle, the latest Plash still works on the latest (stable) Debian release, but as others have pointed out, it's quite out of date with respect to Ubuntu's release cycle, and I'm concerned that when Debian eventually makes another release, I'll end up having to hang back indefinitely to keep with Plash. And of course we all know that "Debian stable" already means "Debian obsolete", so "Debian oldstable" is "Debian horrifically obsolete". I could try to up-port Plash myself in this eventuality, but I just don't know enough about the system to do that.

It's also concerning that Debian has switched from glibc to eglibc, not sure how much that affects plash's glibc port (if at all).

Anywho, I'm just wondering if I can get a reassuring (or damning) word with respect to the development status of Plash?
