I’m concerned that Ashwin Maroli, the lead developer working on Jekyll, has not been active lately. It appears that pull requests and issues are not being addressed in a timely fashion. What’s going on?
probably better to ask that on the main jekyll repo as an issue?
I don’t have any insight, seems to me mostly jekyll is in a mature stage where not much is happening. Doesn’t help any that GH doesn’t seem to want to update to jekyll 4 which makes it weird to make any additional changes to it if the main consumer of it isn’t going to update.
There are several posts in here like this, but it is still a worthy static site generator in my opinion, I just wouldn’t really expect any new shinny things to come along, which honestly to me is not a bad thing.
I can’t think of another software project as important and widely adopted as Jekyll that has been completely abandoned by the developer community in such a short period of time. This is tragic.
