That Wayland Fork Doesn't Seem To Be Thriving

The widely talked about fork of Wayland and Weston no longer seem to be advancing.

Back in March there was a fork of Wayland and the Weston reference compositor. While the developer wanted to advance Wayland/Weston, he went a bit far and offered kickbacks and then said mentioning the project is banned on Phoronix.

Curious to see how the project is thriving today, according to its GitHub, there haven't been any public commits in 3~4 months to their mainline repositories.
