This page is being watched, and there is a paid developer (Neil K.) working
exclusively on it.  However, there is quite a number of features to
implement, so it's taking quite some time for him to develop basically
Normally there should be at least one or two more developers working
exclusively on it. But that's just the usual Wikimedia way, few developers
are hired anyway. Since the WMF has enough money for it now, they're trying
to hire <http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Job_openings> a few developers
they've been needing badly for a long time. But they don't seem to get the
employees they need, and that's becoming a serious concern.
