Not exactly dormant, but not under heavy development.  Personally, I would
love to see SMB2 support added, and there may be some other features
missing.  I'm doing most of my own work in Python or C these days, so I
haven't been contributing much.

...but the lights are on and there are people still answering questions.

at least nominally, be considered nuts for some definition of the term
"nuts" with which we were previously unfamiliar.  As such, any ideas or

please contact the nearest retail outlet and have a nice day.  Sorry, I just
think it's funny to have these notices on e'mail messages sent to a publicly
archived mailing list.
