My understanding is that deployments nowadays are the primary parties
funding Sugar development. And the deployments or their contractors
sometimes duplicate work, run into debates upstreaming things, and/or may
choose to keep some things semi-private to differentiate their products.
So apart from major functionality like HTML5 activities, a lot of
peripheral development is happening downstream-first. And when we do try
to do major cross-group development like the GTK3 port, this has lead to
finger-pointing behind the scenes where it is claimed others are not doing
what they promised.
To the best of my knowledge no single organization currently employs enough
developers and/or contractors to keep Sugar development alive. I am not
certain what the best approach to take is when this is the case.
