I think the problem is lack of information about statuses of various projects. Users can't disticnt between something that is being worked on slowly because of lack of time of dev or technical difficulties and something totally forgotten. I think it would be helpful if features/isues discussed here have official tickets in Arch bugsystem where everyone could see current status with dev commentary and could ask questions. It doesn't need to be updated daily or weekly but we could point to it everyone who's interested instead of creating new topics here or on forum over and over.
