Most of us developers use spring-rich in our day jobs, so we rely on it and keep bugfixing it. The problem is, that none of the current developers is devoted *only* to spring-rich (as Keith Donald was when he started spring-richclient), so it seems we tend to have an attidude of fixing what is bugging us - and occasionally applying straightforward patches that others put into JIRA - instead of thinking in terms of roadmaps and defining the next release.

We are the community
We live in the century of the proprietary and free open source code and technology. I support the second option - but in this case we have to pay royalty for the freedom. We have to bring our thoughts and efforts and share it with community if we want this ideology to work.
If we want this project alive we have to support it - provide bugfixes and new code. The main problem here that we need to have community leader and evangelist for the technology. Without person who will drive our efforts we will be in vain.
So I suggest at least to share information about your own experience in the blogs, official project wiki and contribute.
I just started looking inside the project and was confused that most of the posts are dated with the year 2006, but I see very good idea inside this project and would like to continue to work with the framework.
