I too, would like to see wc-ng completed soon. It just a question of resources. As you have noticed, with only two or three people working on it, the bus factor isn't too high. The best way to get wc-ng completed would be for folks to start (or continue) hacking, and for people who have influence over development resources to allocate those resources in a manner which encourages wc-ng completion. A team of two or three working full-time is going to take a while; a larger group of folks can help expedite it significantly.

[ We've also been hit with the ASF transition which has been a bit time consuming. I think we're getting closer to getting that completed, though. ]
