Is it unmaintained or just stable? JSON spec is frozen after all. I prefer to use speed as the selection metric, regardless of maintenance status. Of course if there are unmaintained packages with bugs, that's a different story.
Any update on this? cjson is both unmaintained and has unpatched bugs (i.e. it's unstable). The vendors appear to be taking over responsibility for patching this on a per-vendor basis. I'd also be fine with cjson being reclaimed on PyPI or something.
Not good. I'll deprioritize cjson then. I guess it'll go to the end of the list, as removing it outright will probably break some people's setup. Can perhaps add a deprecation warning that triggers if that is the module that gets loaded.
