"Internally, it has gotten so toxic on Team Kodi that I would be surprised if the project lasts another year. Not without something changing. The abuse is to the point that it's not fun for anyone to work on things anymore, let alone attract new developers and team members."
The entire discussion reminds us of how some of the most talented software designers can have serious problems with social skills, to the point that they probably don't even realize how what they say and how they act affects others. But beyond that, it may be the first indication that a much-used piece of software is on its way downhill. Before anyone says it, I will also mention is that Kodi is NOT piracy software as some erroneously believe; there have been a number of unofficial addons written for Kodi that may facilitate piracy in some way but they are neither endorsed by the Kodi developers nor allowed in the official Kodi addon repository. To blame Kodi for these addons would be like blaming Firefox or Chrome for an unofficial addon or extension that may facilitate piracy in some manner.
