"Is Mautic Dead? "
No, Mautic is not dead, with the exception of the very beginnings, Mautic and the community is now almost as lively as it was 2 years ago, which is both good but sad at the same time, cause it means we haven’t had net growth in over 2 years.
However, some important decisions that are being taken by the leadership could bring the dark ages back if they are not careful in their next steps:
In my last opinion post on mauteam.org I pointed out a huge problem that is just about to hit all of us in the long term, but especially the code contributors in the short term. If the community leadership doesn’t handle this issue with love and care, a lot of people might get really disappointed and possibly disjointed.
Is Mautic dying out?
Mautic will probably never dry out, there’s too many people, too many companies invested into it to let it die. A different question is:
Will the Community version thrive?
This remains to be seen, Mautic self-hosted might become stuck down the road if no new features are added, which is exactly what could happen if the all the code that is currently trapped in the migration limbo is never migrated.
In my opinion, since Acquia forced the migration upon us, Acquia should actively help every coder migrate the code (if the author is available and willing) or migrate the code themselves if the author is unreachable or unwilling to migrate it.
I would be gladly surprised if they announced anything of the sort, but I am not optimistic at all.
I suggest you read my last opinion post, if you haven’t already, it will hopefully give you some pointers about the current situation:
