Comment Not just stale projects, it's active ones too... (Score 1) 162

Even supposedly active, sponsored projects like Eclipse's JDT code seem to suffer from decent patches with proper regression tests being ignored for months. My only advice if you can't make the developer(s) take notice is to maintain your own branch / patchset. Forking generally is to be avoided if possible, particularly if you only want to augment the code or change tiny bits of it.
