- I have uploads hanging in processing since end of May, also some uploads
  which are finished are still showing upload.
- Since early June there is no reverse geocoding
- No page lists contact informations
- Twitter account dead for 12+ Month
- Pretty much "nothing" happening in the git repos since end of last year

So bugs, operational down or broken and noone to really talk to.

After i opened a bug put in my tracks not beeing processed there
were voices says that never anything comes back into the bug reports
but some bugs disappear magically.

Comparing that to other projects i am contributing this is

I dont know what happened behind the scenes but it feels as when
Telenav lost interest and grab "took over" with pretty much nothin
in their hands.
