Lee,

Hopefully Andrey will also respond.   I will say that I have partially
withdrawn from libtiff maintenance because I am stretched in so many
directions - mainly addressing bugs that affect me directly.  I believe
bugzilla now assigns to Andrey by default and I know his availability
is variable.

I will say that we try to fix serious well reported bugs with the library
fairly quickly.  But some of the utility programs seem like a never
end source of suggestions and bug reports that are hard for me to
address not being a pdf/ps/etc guru.  So utility reports are the most
likely to be left untouched (imho).

I think libtiff 3.9 is in pretty good shape in it's branch, and I
have migrated my project - GDAL - to use libtiff 4 from head with
good results.  I hope we can issue a libtiff 4 release candidate at
some point.  I'm not personally aware of serious issues with it.

Ultimately libtiff is first a library, and secondarily a set of
utilities.

I'd add, and I'm sure I speak for Joris, Andrey, Bob too, that
we would love to have additional developers interested in making at
least a medium term commitment to the project.

In short, the project is progressing, and critical issues (and
our own itches) are getting fixed.  But we aren't really keeping
on top of the bug reports.

Best regards,
