If I take a look at gearman.org:
* documentation needs an updates, many sections are empty or respond with a 404
* the "news" mentioned the move to github in 2016 and promised new release and documentation updates
* last release was in 2017

All in all, it seems to me as if gearman is kind of abandoned? Or do I look in the wrong places?

Best regards,
Christian

Can you be more specific? I haven’t see any such issues in my perusing of the documentation section of gearman.org. I clicked on like 5 different links and didn’t see any 404s. That said, I don’t think the current maintainers have a convenient means of updating the content of gearman.org.

Did you actually look on Github? There is plenty of maintenance activity there.


We are actually gearing up for a new release right now. We have 6 active PRs to merge, and then I think we will see a new release soon.

We're still here. Just released 1.1.19 today. I've been busy is all.

Can you report these as issues? The site is entirely in git here:

https://github.com/gearman/gearman.github.io

I'll be honest, I barely have time for the code, so the website takes a
back seat. I'd love some help here.

Patches accepted.

This is misleading, 1.1.18 was December 2017. But yeah, I got busy,
changed jobs twice in 2 years, and haven't had open source as my primary
role.

I think the website is due for a refresh. But the activity is pretty
constant on https://github.com/gearman/gearmand , so look there first
next time!
