Iam a little lost here. Incidentally I wanted to make an issue for umatrix, but because issues are closed on github its not possible. It also looks like, feature requests are not wanted because the developer does not have them time and seems to be very frustrated about the issue stuff. So, thats why there is only this single thread left to discuss the addon features and bugs?
I wonder if there is no better approach, the github repository does not need to be maintained by a single person. It is possible to set up group repositories, so others could take care for the issue stuff. Furthermore, feature requests where never be just something like “hey developer, please do x and y” but more like “would be good if the addon would have this feature”. And that could be implemented by the developer, but also by any other person because that is the essence of open source! When I want to contribute to any FOSS project, I first check the available issue tracker.
I very much understand, that there is the need to organize and categorize issues and to close wrong support problems. And that it is to much for a developer who does not have the time anymore to care for. But instead of shutting down the whole thing, maybe we can find a better solution, like moving the repo to a group control?
