... on the other side it means that now Budgie will soon be actively developed again.
I feel much safer knowing that Budgie regains as main contributors, the original creators. :roll:
I understand the potential benefit of "giving the keys" of the project to multiple potential contributors ( I am imagining Ubuntu Budgie, Manjaro, GeckoLinux as the main distros), but my question is:

-There is no a concrete risk of losing focus in the direction of the project? :?

I am glad the development is now active now only as "intentions" but also in more practical terms!

The contributors to Budgie hasn't changed between when it was a Solus project to when it was separated to when it returned to a Solus project as seen here https://github.com/solus-project/budgie ... ntributors

But as shown in the graph after July 17 something has stopped or at least slowed down. I'm guessing it is the time when Budgie was out of the Solus Developers umbrella?

I can't remember the exact timing, but the contributions from outside Solus developers has been slim
