Jython is an amazing piece of software, I must say. I have been fiddling and twiddling with all sorts of Java modules in my dayjob, and Jython just makes my life a whole lot easier. If I need to know how some undocumented, mysterious Java package behaves, I can just import the damn thing into my Jython program and see what it eats and spits and so on.

But the thing is that there has always been a bit of a shortage of core Jython developers, and lately things have been even worse. Apparently Finn Bock hasn't been active for a while, and Samuele Pedroni et al. don't have time for everything. I don't know the details of the whole story, but Guido mentioned about this in his EuroPython keynote, and the message was that there aren't enough core developers right now for Jython.

On the other hand, Pedroni didn't seem to be too concerned about the situation in his message about the future of Jython on some Jython mailing-list (which apparently isn't on-line right now, so I can't give you a link). Anyhow, the best you can do to help is to take some of the bugs from sourceforge and resolve them with the help of the other developers.


Turns out I didn't know half of the history of Jython. Here is the Story of Jython, written by Jim Hugunin as a foreword to Jython Essentials.
