[Xorp-users] Show of hands on users please

We are (soon to be) using Xorp 1.6 in a production educational environment
for stub site access devices.  Initially using for simple IGP routing, some
mcast and future implementations of v6.

Over the past year, we've worked with a supplier of a customized access
device to integrate it over use of another commercial network platform.
I've been a bit nervous over time not seeing a sense of frequent
development/defect resolution activity, but the recent thread on development
issues has me more concerned.  

Xorp has been good fit for us so far and we'd obviously like to see it
I may not fully understand what may be going on in the background, but I
would hope that a way can be found to integrate defect resolutions found
within any sub-branches of the mainline and a renewed sense of openness can
rise from the unfortunate demise of Xorp.inc.
