Low use does not mean that status is bad. Language don't change that fast. But it is a problem of course.
Issue is it is a lot of work, and people doing many ours without any payment are rare. It has to be a hobby.
And again.... I think it all became too complex. I am an IT guy, and know my way around, but when it comes to programming, it is just not my cup of java. java+ecplipse+git+maven++++++, it is just too large a set of build up, get to know.
I would like to plea for a less programming oriented interface between language specialists and the tool.
