Firstly, I would like to thank the developers who maintain this great project.

Second, I want to use it for some projects I have in mind and would like to know what the plans are for this project's future. My concern is that what happened to OSQA will happen to Askbot. That is, the open source project stays limited in features and improvements while the commercial version (saddled with heavy pricing) gets all the love.

Thanks again for your time, energy, and expertise to maintain this great project!

Definitely, no plans to stop developing Askbot as Open Source project. What really happened with OSQA I think is that the open source project was simply abandoned in the favor of a commercial product. No plans to do the same here.
