I wouldn't actually say so. The thing is, they have quite a small core team who have been working for quite a while to get 1.6 released. They just don't have the manpower at this point to fix our issues, especially when a lot of Moin users never face the same problems our wiki has.

In my experience they are cooperative and interested - they have for example offered ideas and possible solutions to the subscription problem - but if we want fixes soon, we need to do them ourselves.

Have you successfully gotten patches applied? My impression has been that they are very willing to talk about our problems but not been very open to our approaches to fixing them. It could be a misperception or miscommunication but the project seems very cathedral-ish with the unfortunate addition that the dev team isn't focused on large sites and therefore has suboptimal solutions in mind for our problems.
