Seems that today is not a good day for Strongloop. This is now on top of the complaints about express.js they are dealing with.
Same thing I said there also applies here (unfortunately):
Its stuff like this that makes me nervous when any large company starts / gains control of an open source project. At some point you stop dealing with developers when discussing issues and start dealing with the influence of management. If management wants to pull support for it, and the community isn’t large enough to save it your stuck with another piece of technical debt you have to remove.
Yeah, although this ticket is from 11 months ago - is it just getting publicity today because of the other issues or because of something specific that occured today?
This PR seems to have reopened the issue.
