I have to say I am really impressed by firebird. I have been a long time mozilla user (since about <0.9ish) however I struggle to see who is contributing to firebird. As it is it seems like a one man developer effort, Ben Goodger and him alone. Are there any other people contributing to this project on a regular basis? I am just concerned about the future if firebird has only one main developer. What has happned to the likes of David Hyatt, Blake Ross, Shaver, Waterson,Pavlot et al?
