Follow-up Comment #6, bug #16389 (project make):

Perhaps it is time to consider forking GNU make?
The current maintainer seems too busy to give it the attention it deserves,
but appears unwilling to allow others to help.

If we look at CVS, we see a burst of activity on March 19th, with a small
fixup on the 21st. Prior to that the last checkin was November 18th of last
year, and before that was the end of September, and then some at the start of
April. So 4 checkins in the last 12 months.

In this time crippling bugs have been reported, and in some cases patches
submitted, but are still not available even via CVS. Paul says that a new
version will not be out for "months".

Paul seems to have some interesting projects in the works, in particular
adding Guile to make, but I think users deserve to have access to the best
bug free product the community can currently build. It took 3.5 years to go
from 3.80 to 3.81, will we need to wait until 2010 before we see 3.82?
